    More. I suppose I will Hysol the firewall to the tubing behind. Maybe through bolt it to the tubing.

    One side is leaning out a 1/4" or so and needs to be drawn in. Couldn't use the opposite side as its not strong enough to keep from being drawn in itself. Figured out a way pull it in though. All thread and washers make for a good screw jack.

    Now to lock the sides together with the dowel on the plans. I don't trust simple glue joints here so pinned each side with a thin ribbed nail and Hysol.

    A couple photos from the Piper museum in Lock Haven PA that may be of interest. Note the tabs for bolting the firewall.

    Nice job enjoy following this build. This is one difficult and time consuming build not very many people will take on a build like this. Great work

    I thought 4 years to build this originally. I started February (?) 2018 so approaching end of year 2. I think 4 is still a good estimate.

    Trying to design a wooden bracket to build the cabin framing around.
