Updates: New Bungee Truss and prepration for the firewall

We are making great progress. Last month I discussed the truss that was ordered from Steen Aero. The new one arrived and we began grinding to fit it into place.

Some sheet metal tabs were grinded off to help fan out the firewall. If you remember a consistent mistake the previous builder made was not measuring to the center of the tubes. Now the airplane is about an inch smaller so everything has to be custom fit.
