I’ve had the tailcone finished for many years now and I’ve been waiting for a good time to complete the 08-6-1 service bulletin from Vans. The service bulletin is for possible cracks in the F-1010 bulkhead and calls for adding doublers.
I needed to add an antenna doubler to the belly of the rear tail for the VOR/LOC/GS antenna, so figured now was a good time to do the service bulletin.
First task was to remove all the rivets from the F-1014 deck and peel it back for access to the bulkhead.
Next the doublers were match drilled to the bulkhead.
Doublers primed and riveted to the bulkhead.
I still need to finish the antenna doubler, so after that I’ll be able to button back up the F-1014 deck.
