Tail Cone Riveting Part #8

I filled the bottom of the tailcone with some rigid foam that I had laying around to be able to crawl in there without damaging the parts.

 Since the bottom of the tailcone is not exactly flat, I placed the whole thing on the floor on top of another 3/4" piece of rigid foam.  This all worked very well!

 I bucked and my uncle ran the gun.

 All done!

I then crawled inside and installed the seat belt anchor point brackets.

Finally I bolted together the elevator bellcrank to the battery box/bellcrank mount.  The bolts called out are -5 in length which seem a bit long.  A -4 would work better.
