Default cad

anyone have the dimensions for the firewall? my plans didn't include the full size drawing and I'm not sure the guy before me cut out the firewall correctly due to the tight fit onto the longerons (need to be squeezed together to fit into holes.)

thanks

For what? A Cessna or a J-3 Cub?

Thanks TMann. I'm shocked at how far off, my firewall and longerons are. However everything else on the fuse measures up per plans. It's almost like the firewall has been stretched an inch. Any newsletters or updates that the original builder may have followed in doing so?

Well, your measurements may be more accurate. I measured the distance between the lower longerons (my paper original from the plans) and it measures an inside width of 15.8 inches.

The drawing I posted came off the ez.org site.

I'll check further but not tonight.
