Step kit installation

Kerin went out to the grocery store, so Snickers came down and laid on his dog bed while I worked on the plane. I'm amazed the noise doesn't bother him. At various times I had the die grinder, air compressor, shop vac, grinder, and drill press running. He just put up with the racket.

After finishing the flange work on the right step, I started working on the UHMW blocks that mount the torque tubes to the baggage ribs. Here I've drilled the three .188 (#12) holes in one of the blocks. I did the same for the other side.
