6 hrs
Scuff, clean, prime, paint aft baggage bulkheads. Now that they're painted, I can finish installing the shoulder harness wear blocks.

At this stage of the project, there are too many things to work on all at once. So the project space gets a bit scattered. Or maybe it's because I've had a nasty head cold for a week and I can't focus....

Fit and drill 758 brackets to bottom of 766A. On the 9, this is a two piece bracket.
Fit and drill the 785B attach angle to the 785 backrest brace.
Fit the 766, 760, and 785 flap assembly parts to the floors and 705 bulkhead.
Disassemble, deburr, dimple.

Drill out several nutplates to allow riveting of seat and baggage skins to center ribs/nutplates.

Drill center ribs for nutplates to be used to hold adel clamps for securing wiring. Deburr, dimple. Got this ready to go, but I haven't figured out how to set the rivets yet. This is best done before putting the center section together.
