Wings come back & we sit in it!
This week we were able to get the wings back over to the main hangar, one on Saturday, and the other last night. During the Saturday session we worked on some deburring of the right wing that didn’t get done before it was stored for a short while.
While that was going on, the fuselage was being worked on at the upper cabin area, and some seat work was done…we were able to sit in it!
The honors for the first try out went to our most regular builder…Jerry Paveglio!
The side workbench was also in use on Saturday where Hal and Brady worked on getting the bellcranks for the flaperons drilled and bushed. Hal proceeded to install them perfectly!
Toward the end of this session, we just had to set up a test fit of the right wing with several of us “on hand” to support it for the picture.
The Wednesday evening session began with bringing the second wing over to the main hangar.
The main activity of the evening was more deburring. We had several areas to go over and double check.
Jerry kept hard at work on the fuselage cabin area, while Tim Hoversten and myself worked on getting the cork installed on the fuel tanks to get those fit in to the wings.
The next session on Saturday should see wiring conduit installation and fuel system installation continued…and perhaps riveting of the top wing skins. Stay tuned!
