Picking It Back Up

November 26, 2012

Well the airplane factory is back up and running after an extended hiatus. I actually took August and September completely off for a family vacation and being outdoors in the NW Sunshine as much as possible. In October after persuading the spiders to move out of the garage, I finished some small tasks on the fuse. I mounted the outside mount for the fuel line cover on the front spar and finished prepping the fuel tank to fuse mount. I spent a weekend taking the EAA Electrical workshop. That was very helpful to start understanding the basics of aircraft electrical systems and methods.

In November I was able to get rudder cable install started, drill the holes for the static air probes and squeeze more rivets at the 705/longeron intersections. The turkey day holiday has given me time to concentrate on building the canopy frame.

With my new momentum I’m hoping to knock out the canopy frame and temp the forward deck together in the next month. Then it’ll be time to paint the inside cabin with its final color!
