I’m in a part of this project where I’ve procrastinated a large number of 20 minute tasks. Time to knock those out.
I’ll go back and tighten these up and add the cotter pins to the castle nuts when the wings are on.
The weekend was slow progress. It’s very hot and muggy so 8am is about quits time.
Got the flap motor and bellcranks installed though.
Short work today. One bite at a time.
My weekday progress is on a tight “before work” schedule. Today I started working on the contols in the cockpit.
Not a bad morning.
Measured and cut a bunch of L angles for the skins on both wings.
I’ve seen a lot of soltions including tools you can buy to draw enterlines 10mm from the edge of something. Mine is slightly cheaper since it’s made of a scap and took about 30 seconds to make…
And I’m putting the cart before the horse here, but I wanted to get motivated so I started thinking about what the cockpit layout will be.
Don’t have time? Find time. Between 6am and 8:30am today I pulled the nose skin on the second wing over and started work on all of the skin angles. Chip away a little at a time.
Today was a short day, 5:30 am until about 8am as I do have a day job 🙂
Greig helped me flip the wing back over so I can start on the leading edge.
And I put a YouTube video up that I actually recorded about a week ago.
Debur, primer, rivet. Repeat.
