Cozy Experimental Aircraft Update – February 26, 2017

Removed the peel ply from the canard hardpoint layups and trimmed the excess fiberglass away from bulkhead F22.

Sanded bulkhead F28 to fit into position 6.25″ from the front of F22. Used a plumb bob to centre F28 and a level to ensure F28 is level and then double checked the distances (6.25″) from F22 on both sides (left and right). With F28 in place, I outlined its position on the longeron/fuselage sides so it can easily be positioned there when I am ready to flox it into position permanently.
