Fuselage Features

I mentioned yesterday that I was going to add a fairlead for the elevator trim cable at the aft end of the skylight. This morning I welded that tube on, and while I was there, I also welded on tabs for the front and rear flood lights.

Those will be LED spotlights on the battery bus. The light fixtures are adjustable so that the rear white light can point to the baggage area or to the back seat. The front is red and white, and I’ll install a dimmer on the instrument panel for it. With our new rear left window arrangement, the lower stringer interfered with the diagonal steel tube. I cut a small relief out of the stringer, and it looks like a small bite mark.
