Cozy Update – July 11, 2016

There was a small void in the lower front of each fuselage side. I drilled a small entry hole in both voids and using a syringe, I filled both voids with epoxy until the epoxy dripped out the front.
Workshop temperature was 27 deg C and humidity was 49%.  I mixed 15g resin with 5.7g hardner.

A centreline was marked on the plank at 4.625″ (4 5/8) from each side.

Two sets of two 2x4s were nailed to the 10′ plank perpendicular to the centerline, level, and exactly 101.75″ apart. The 101.75″ is measured from the outboard side of both sets and 101.75″ was confirmed across multiple locations along the 2x4s.

The temporary firewall will be added to complete the jig, then fuselage assembly can start.

Cozy Update – July 3, 2016

Procured a 2″ x 10″ x 10′ plank and two 2″ x 4″ x 8′ s for Cozy fuselage assembly and alignment.


A 2″ x 10″ x 10′ plank was placed in position on the shop floor and shimmed level. This plank will serve as the base ( W.L. 0.0) of the jig for fuselage assembly.

Cut the two 2″ x 4″ x8′ boards into four 2″ x 4″ x 4′ pieces.
