Decided to install the control sticks, at least temporarily. I had left them assembled from the initial fitting back when the spar carry through was still on the bench. Sort of expected I could figure out how to work them into place assembled. No Way!
Had to take them mostly apart. I remember some of those washers being really tricky to get in, and they won't be any fun while bent over the side of the airplane. Someone had made the seat rib mod on the next set of ribs out, and that would have saved a great deal of time. Not too late, I guess.
