Fuselage Section 30, Step Installation

Section 30, Step Installation

Section 30 went fairly quick except for needing to re-drill the left step AN3 bolt to an AN4 bolt. When the AN3 bolt was drilled I enlarged to hole by not holding the drill properly and therefore the step was loose from the bolt fitting loose in the drilled hole.
Spent about 4.5 hours working this section. Had to remove most of the epoxy paint on the step that goes into the fuselage for it to fit into the mounts. I installed the step tube spacers to provide a better grip on the tube and possible fix the known step wiggle issue.
