Lot’s of 20 minutes here, 20 minutes there this week.
I forgot some holes in a very tight spot. Had to take a stubby drill bit and cut it to the shortest length I could manage and still make it turn in my right angle attachment on my drill.
I love it when hacks work out!
It’s Memorial Day weekend and it’s “finish these 5 things that no one would ever notice. But I’m here at the airport putting one foot in front of the other.
Stole this idea from the internet. Noggin protection.
Wasn’t feeling motivated today, but I came out anyway. Actually spent more time cleaning the hangar than anything, but some progress was made anyway.
Very happy with the access panel work today. Adding two on the side channels where the flaperon controls go, and two in the baggage floor.
Dremel tools are so useful!
Finally got to sit in it and make airplane noises.
In my mind, these would take a few minutes. They took hours. They didn’t quite fit and it was very difficult to cleco and rivet in the control channel. My back is protesting now.
Day job today but I did some tidying and fitting of the trailing edges.
Got the wing skin on the pilot site top riveted today. Had been holding off for the pitot tube installation.
Then it was on to the baggage compartment.
Finishing this took about 90 minutes longer than I planned for, but I’m happy with the result.
