First peek....

Not much to display this week.  I did get some time to work on the elevators but that was mostly drilling and deburring which is not much fun to take pictures of.  I did get some work done on the hangar though.  Its not complete but at least its ready for the airplane to come home....hopefully next Saturday.

Speaking of the airplane I got a picture in email this week which means they are working on it!  Next Friday pickup is a very real possibility at this time!

Here she is with her white base coat of paint!  If you look in the paint booth in the background you can see some of the other parts of the airplane (cowling, control surfaces, fairings)

Another view of the first coat of paint

This is what the hangar looked like before I started....

This is what the back section of the hangar looks like after this weekends work.  I still need a few sheets of drywall, some mud work, and some paint but its getting close!  I have a lot of crap stored back there for now just to make room for the return of the RV-9A.
