Hi, All, and Merry Christmas Eve!

Working on the forward fuselage, I'm at the point where I'm installing all the stuff that goes on top of the fwd fuselage floor.

Since I have the sliding seats option, some stuff gets left out, some stuff gets added - specifically the under-seat supports.

The plans sheet says to space SS01-1   81mm back from the main front seat support - that's rivet hole center to rivet hole center.  As you can see in my enclosed pic, that line is about theeeeeese much behind the now-unused rivet hole for the not-needed center seat support.  I also noted on the plans that SS01-1 is supposed to use the edge rivet holes that eventually mate up with the fwd fuse side panels.

Eye-balling it, if I cleco the edge holes with SS01-1, I can flex SS01-1 enough that that centerline hole matches up with SS01-1's rivet hole. HOWEVER, the part is then skewed about 3mm on the armrest side.

So. Did you:

1. install SS01 skewed?

2. install it straight and not put a rivet in the center hole, since drilling it would result in a too-large hole?

3. Drill it out anyway but take it to A5 size?

4. Something else?

Thanks for any suggestions;

HI CArl, I left that hole open. I also cut and re-installed the original  supports up to the new crosswise ones instead of leaving them out and just filling the holes. The sliding seat option was a tough one for me to do since things are so tighly fit. Have fun with it. Tom
