Fuel Pump Bracket & Power Pass Thru

Time: 2 Hours

Due to the bad Midwest weather events my UPS shipments have been delayed a day or two so I’m still in a holding pattern for riveting the fuselage skins. I need to run the fuel lines and brake lines before I do anymore riveting as I have great access now. I did however get a couple of things done today. I blind riveted the fuel pump/filter holding brackets to the forward floor after priming and painting them that I did last Thursday. I used the rubber strip that Van’s supplied and trimmed as instructed to give the edges some protection.

(null)The second item that I took care of was to drill and install the Jegg’s power pass thru. This will allow my “hot” battery cable to pass thru the firewall to the starter contactor and give a nice clean look. Again drilling through the stainless steel firewall is a pain!
