In order to go full OCD, the top and lower three bolts should align, leaving the centre vertical three's to then align.

Enjoy :D

Regarding yesterday's POTD. There seems to be a commonly held misconception that Helicoils are some sort of last resort, cheap fix when in reality they are without question the most efficient way of fastening anything into soft alloy. Anchor nuts are great and as good (but certainly no better) whilst being horribly labour-intensive to install. So what we did with the 'dragon's teeth' was to rivet in short strips of 3/16th 2024-T3 alloy left over from the sponson build under the corrugations then drill and insert Helicoils once the outer floor was on. Credit to Rich - the master of Helicoils - they're bulletproof.

Todays "pic of the day" sums it all up for me, when you of the damage that the bow section sustained in the accident, to see it restored to its original condition is just incredible. :D

Another excellent POTD today - starboard side looks great now and it really gives a sense of the progress being made. Brilliant stuff, team.

Thanks for the positive feedback. The POTD has the same effect on me and I see the real thing every day!

Is not the clip for the jetpipe static tapping for pressurising the left hand catch tank for the CCU drain? Or is that one further forward?
I should know this!

Aye it's the one further forward- the P-clip with the rubber that went through the frame at F3.
Bugger! Thought I was going to look clever for a moment.
