Decide to do undercarriage first

Lay out all the u/c parts first to check all ready … Ivor has made a great job of packaging all parts in neatly labelled packages.

Some joints to pre form … The ones done in the factory have set the standard ! Very clean .. No pressure !

Getting hold of drill bits like 3.2mm and 4.8mm are impossible in Jersey ! Special order ! So this is very frustrating and holds up progress.

Discovered the top of the range hand riveter from Stanley is definately NOT heavy duty … Those nickel copper aircraft rivets are super hard

Called for very accurate leg alignment – any fraction out could mean toe in or out later and no chance to adjust

  1. Try LC Pallot or Les Le Ruez in St Peter for odd drill bit sizes, I know Les has a large selection of the odd decimal sizes, i filled up my drill stand ‘rack’ with all the odd sizes only the other day
