Pre weight and balance

Before we started with the engine cowling we need to check the weight and balance, if not we need to recalculate the engine mount and
modify it.

We made 3 ramps and used person scales. This is only possible when you use thick wooden plates to spread the weight on the scale.
The calculate of the engine mount is perfect, the aircraft fits perfect into the enveloppe. The leading edge fuel tanks, we made, give us almost no
change in the gravity point. So we use only 4 inch instead of approved 6 inch, we will never reach the aft datum line.

Checking what the weight change will be at the nose gear with 2 persons in it.
