- Drilled and installed right caliper mount to the landing gear.
- The inner wheel spacer for the LSA did not quite have enough clearance for the AN4 bolt heads. I had to take the Dremel tool and grind a little out for them to fit properly.
- Installed the tire and tube on one wheel.
- Installed the tail wheel.
