I received my additional parts from Vans which allowed me to continue through the forward fuse. I basically was able to work through the left side just like the right, but got a few more specific pictures. Here is how I drilled the fuel tank attach plate. Slipping rivets on the inside fuse to hold the spacers in place. Also, securing the attach plate with appropriate clamps.
Next I was able to work through both gussets between the aux longerons and the firewall angle. I took my time on these and they turned out really nice. I guess the second time is a charm. Once they were clamped in place I drilled through the skin and the aux longeron, Then using clecos I peeled the skin back and an angle drill worked great through the firewall angle.
Then Bekah snapped a shot of my where I have been spending lots of time these days. Its crazy how much you need to crawl around, in and out of this fuse while its under construction..
