More Pitot & Headrest work
Today I did some more work on the Pitot tube installation. I cut the G-10 heat isolation tube shorter and inserted it into the nose for fitting. I determined that I need a .875 shoulder machined on it to insert through the hole in the nose. I machined the hole tonight and I'll test fit tommorow. Too bad the lathe and the plane are 20 miles apart, but the hangar doesn't have 220V to power it anyways.
Next I did some trimming and layups on the headrest.
