I am very excited to finally finish up the cockpit section "Welding" of the two place  Big Toot.  Tonight I started installing the Gusset strengthening plates to the cabane struts.  This will add a tremendous amount of strength to this aircraft.

Note, how nice this .0625 4130 formed itself around the streamline tubing.
Enjoy the pictures.   I only have five more to go.  Will get a lot of it done tomorrow.
I think it is going to work out very nice.

Thanks to Russ Keith for cutting these out with his NC Machine at  the Denton Tech. Center.
