Quiet Saturday

Hours: 2.5 | Posted in Bulkheads, Foward Fuselage

Stopped at Home Depot for 3/4″ hole plug (nose gear). This one is nickle plated steel until I can find a stainless steel one.

After reading up on in-flight fires and protective measures, I am considering changing the firewall control cable penetration to steel. The wiring feed throughs are already stainless steel. At the very least I decided to reverse the eye balls and then fill the engine side with fire retardant. This helps also with clearance of the items mounted on forward side of firewall.
