Shimming nutplate for Baggage Compartment

1.0 hours

Shims for baggage compartment

Two of the nutplates are hanging over the bulkhead, so either I need to shim the nutplates or cut the bulkhead. I made some shims.

Riveted the nutplates with shims in place. Now the problem is that the screws are a bit short in these nutplates. Probably should have trimmed back the bulkhead a little.
