Test fit left side skin

Test fitting the left side skin to investigate which corrective actions are needed.

Skin roughly in place:

To hold the gussets needed for the outside skin it’s important to have access from the inside to holde the gussets in place.
Therefore the order of mounting the skins is important, this is definitely:
1) inside front skins
2) firewall
3) outside skins
4) inside rear skins

Some issues are visible like missing holes, spacers needed, trimming needed. I will address these in upcomming posts.

Second place is near the main spar channel:

So first step is trim the front inside skins…
