This isn’t a page out of the The Book, but I wanted to mark a milestone. I’ve got all of the avionics boxes installed in the cockpit and re-installed the upper fuselage skin, so it looks more like an airplane again. Some of the screws were a bit difficult to get threaded because things didn’t exactly line up at first. I actually had one screw that snapped halfway through the nut plate. I tried to drill it out and use a reverse screw remover but the drill didn’t want to touch the screw itself. I just drilled out the nut plate and replaced it, then went from there.
