Workshop temperature was 25 deg C and humidity was 34%.
Flox was mixed with 112g of resin and 42g hardner to be fairly thick so it would stay in position and minimize runs down the fuselage sides. Flox was applied using 1″ paint brushes and mixing sticks to the front seatback, instrument panel, and front bulkhead F22 in the locations where they mate with the fuselage sides.  Flox was also applied to the mating locations on the fuselage sides.
The seatback and instrument panel were secured in place with nails located in the pre-drilled holes and bulkhead F22 was secured with a clamp arrangement.
The sides were squeezed together with boards and clamps and any excess flox removed from the corners.  All sides were checked to be level and bulkheads double checked to be in the right locations and the assembly will need to cure for at least 24 hrs.
