Houston, We Have A Problem

Well, shit…

See this section of fuselage?

It’s missing something (see blue tape).

There’s supposed to be a piece of 3/4″ .035 4130 in there on both sides.

This airplane has 65 hours on it, yet it’s structurally incomplete. I think I’ll consider this another lesson in restoring old airplanes.

ALWAYS CHECK THE PLANS.

Looks like I get to do some welding…
