Installed engine mount

Tonight I wanted to mount the engine mount in preparation for hanging the engine in a few weeks. It took some force, but I managed to install it tonight. 

I only have the 4 outside bolts installed. The remain two on the bottom I didn’t install yet because I need to fabricate some shims. Here you can the see the gap between the engine mount and the firewall. I’ll fabricate a small shim and then I’ll install the remaining two bolts. 

Next up is to install the landing gear!
