Shimmed F-7101 and F-902

A few weeks off (ugh) but back at it again. While drilling my F-7101 Gear Attach Webs I noticed that there was a small space between the forwards flange of the F-7101s and the F-902 Bulkheads. I am not the first person to encounter this, and as several others have done I decided to put some shims in between the parts to fix the issue.

Here is a good picture of the gap.

Using some scrap .032, I fabricated a shim and match drilled it using the flange on the F-7101s as a guide.

All fixed! Now that I know it worked, I have to make another for the other side.
