Kydex fitting

On this first day of 2021, I went down to the cold hangar and worked on the Kydex fitting. I focused on the forward kick panels. I also shot this short video to cover the Kydex work to date.

Kydex interior

I have begun building the substructure to support the Kydex in the interior. I’m using 1/16” aluminum angle and flat stock. Those angles and flat stock will be held in place via adel clamps around the fuselage tubes.

In each of those I’m installing #8 nut plates every 4”. This will hold the .040 Kydex in place.
