Here you can see a couple of shots of the finished tie-downs. As I say, it’s probably overkill, but I doubt I’ll ever need to add any. 😉

We’re installing baggage tie-downs so we can use cargo nets to restrain our cargo. These things are horribly expensive, but I think they’re necessary and I like these things. I’m putting in three across the front of the whale-tail, and three across the back of the baggage shelf, as well as 2 high above the shelf. I’m also installing installing 6 across the top and bottom of the strake openings, mainly because we hope to mate them with long-range tanks, but also because Elizabeth plans to make custom bags for storing luggage in these nooks.
