Forward Spar Channel

Today I started working on the forward spar channels. After digging though my formed metal kit I located a 96" length of Z03-02 channel. I cut it to length using a hacksaw and snips and then trimmed the end in preparation for forming. Trimming the end involved using one of my small round files and a little sandpaper. The left and right handed snips come in handing working on this material. Next I formed the 68 degree angle on the end. I finished todays work by marking the piece for drilling. I also did some mock setup just to see how the part fits up.
