Nose Gear Block

While preparing to make the bottom fuselage gussets, I noticed a discrepancy in the plans. According to the supplemental drawings for tricycle landing gear, the bottom nose gear bracket is attached to the fuselage via two bolts through the firewall (horizontally),
and three bolts through the "bottom" (vertically). Well, according to the 14H plans,
there is nothing on the bottom of the fuselage for those three vertical bolts to go through.
So, I built that area up, and will sandwich it between the floor and another gusset.
(I had to do something similar with the firewall.)

Total Time: 1.0 hrs.
