Floorboards

April 2012
To keep things as light as possible, I varied from the traditional .032" thick aluminum on all the floors. I substituted .020" aluminum under the rear seat and in the baggage compartment. I also used .025 near the rudder pedals.  Anywhere I will have to step and apply weight, I used .032".

Here is an over view of the floors fitted in place:

You can also see the initial running of the control cables.

Here is the area in front of the pilot's seat (note the fuel selector valve):

The area under the pilot's seat:

This also a good picture of the rear rudder pedal cable attachment.

Here is the area behind the rear seat (baggage compartment):
floors4

Note that all floors over lap the bottom longerons for added strength.
