Bulkhead

I was not looking forward to this step .. could end up looking a mess if you get it wrong ! and great if you get it right !

Used the template and heavy cutters and big gloves – cut edges double as Stanley knives .. only sharper

Then used the template to align centre vertical and cross check with copius measuring. Then overlayed template to nose and existing engine bolts to get these centre punched and then drilled … top two were spot on.

Next step is the fold in the bulkhead and top pilot holes before positioning to pick up lower engine bolts.
