Is anyone having issues with the back of the armrest sides being approx 10mm higher the the tunnel top panel when installed.
This problem has been dogging me since joining the rear and front fuselage. All other parts and pieces seem to line up just fine.
Any help or comments would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the reply Leo. It looks like we are both right and the Homebuilt Help video that I used as a guide has it wrong.
Now I can work on replacing clecos with rivets before the snow flies here in Iowa.

How did you fix the "arm rest interference" problem?
I had the same situation and fixed it by clecoing the aft flange of the gear channel under the rear fuse instead of inside. That brought the rear of the arm rest sides down to fit perfectly. And I didn't need to use brute force to place the seat bases between the rear seat channels and the lower baggage floor.
Now I am trying to determine if there is any downside to having the gear channel flange inside the fuselage so I can start drilling out and riveting.
I will appreciate any information.
Deburring is important but check out this tool, it may make the process much easier: http://www.yardstore.com/browse.cfm?viewfrom=13&catid=334&step=2
The tool deburrs both sides of the hole at once.
I finished inventory last nite and have all the parts in separate kits...finally.
The stretch through North west Ontario looks like it will need a way point at Fort Francis --for sure.
So far I have flown with Angus in his 750 for 3+ hours.It is very responsive and feels particularly solid ---for a fellow who has enjoyed flying Challengers for the last 10 yrs.
no doubt you have seen Angus' pirep
I only prime the mating surfaces
Yes I will be covering any and all exposed metal. My plan is to be on floats in fresh water. Ultimately I would like to fly to all coasts --east, west and perhaps north, if I can manage it. Conrad
