Keel and center wing spar

Keel glued in place with structural epoxy + flox + cabo.  Riveted in place to clamp. Lower cowling removed from fuselage, cowl flange is now in place. With cowling removed, holes for MLG bushings can be drilled into firewall and gear bulkhead.  Multiple layups placed around forward area of keel, where it joins the canard bulkhead.

Lower fuselage was cut out for center spar just forward of firewall and from flange down to gear pocket.  Also MLG cutouts were made in the lower fuselage.  Center wing spar section sanded and wiped down with alcohol. Preliminary fitting, leveling, and shimming of center spar accomplished.
