Progress so far.
Disassembled Left wing to make more space in my Very full 24X32 garage.
Cut out the "C" channel window and replaced with the L-21 windows. New arch material from Javron.
Adjusted the birdcage to make the new windows work, Then cut out all the old birdcage and re-made it (looks way better to me.)
Flipped the dogleg for the baggage compartment.
Added in a cross brace above the pilots compartment "X" brace for the pilots shoulder harness, soon for the passenger as well.
Fabricated floor mounted seatbelt tabs and bars.
Trimmed and adjusted the wooden stringers for the L-21 windows.
