Tonight I fit the flap housing parts to the F-705 bulkhead. Once I got started I just keep going until I had all the parts aligned and drilled. Here is the forward side.

And here is the aft side. One tip here: first align the lower angle on centerline with the channel and overhanging the channel by 1/32 inch and drill the center hole. Cleco the channel to the angle in that one hole then cleco the angle to the floor. That allows you to tilt the channel slightly from side to side to align the upper end dead on center with the upper beam. Match drill the upper two holes and once that is cleco’d in place drill the lower two outer holes through the angle. It worked well for me.
