That piece also allows for the rear access panel to be removed for battery service. The 2 holes in the lower corners are for the attachment latches.

I had my nose in the hangar today, but did not see you. Meant to take a look.

Light mist, 62 degrees, had the airport to myself. Ten landings on five different runways in 33 minutes including taxi. Didn't see a soul until the Stearman party - musta been ten people there.

Could not weld a new seatbelt attach point in the rear as it is too close to the wood formers and the welder cannot reach the joint from the rear. So, going forward we are using the Hooker STC for “non-welded” rear belt attachment. Since the headliner is removed it is an easy install and we will sew an opening in the new headliner where the strap attach point extends into the cabin. The front belt tab was already installed but the re-enforcement tubes cannot be welded in without removing the fabric-so no go until we do a recover down the road.

No, just patching a few spots, fixing a couple broken formers, replacing interior, adding extended baggage, baggage door and new floor and adding adsb

Progress. Hope to get the motor mounts replaced soon and new baffling. Then we can replace the headliner and side panels. Then some fabric touch up paint, baggage door paint and we will be done. Fingers crossed.
