- Countersunk the longerons (this took forever!)
- Prepared about 40 different parts for priming. This includes a lot of organizing of the garage, hanging of plastic, wiping parts down with lacquer thinner, and staging them for etching on Friday.
- Turkey day so about all I got done was the etching of the parts and the priming of most of them
- finished priming the parts that I hadn't got to on Friday and started assembling the fuselage again.
- Tons and tons of "little details" that needed to be taken care of before I can start riveting the fuse together. I know I missed a few but hopefully they wont be hard to fix when I finally figure out what they are!
- Finished assembling the fuse, took care of a bunch more "to-do's" and prepped for riveting. A friend came over to help with the riveting. THANKS Shane!
Enough of that...I'm sure there was a ton of other things to tell you about but here are the few pics I took.
|My "jig" for countersinking the longerons.|
|This is my idea of a paint booth. It didn't do a great job but at least it kept most of the priming dust off of the rest of the garage.|
|The inside of the paint booth after I had completed my first priming session. Lots of white in here.|
|Here is a picture I couldn't resist taking. Its the inside of the fuselage before I got the side skins hung.|
|Ah yes, Shane running the rivet gun. I can't tell you how helpful it was to have him here!|
