Vans Aircraft RV-12 Airplane Build, Section 24 Rollover Structure (part 3)

Reference: page 24-04; 0.5 hours

The sequence of the instruction for the RV-12 airplane on page 24-04 didn't make a lot of sense to me. So while I performed all the steps I did them in a different order as I note below.

Step 2: Mark a centerline in the forward face of the Shear Clips on the tail cone.

This was my first step

Step 1: Cleco the Baggage Bulkheads to the Tailcone Assembly as shown in figure 1 on page 24-04 of the RV-12 airplane plans.

This was my second step

I got way down in the weeds on this one and forgot to take an overview picture.

Step 3: Match-drill #30 the two holes from the Baggage Bulkheads into the corresponding Shear Clips as called out in figure 1 (double check that the centerline drawn is centered in the two holes before match-drilling). Remove the bulkheads, clean and deburr holes.

This completes page 24-04 and this building session. Until next time!
