Finally done with this section! Today Corey & I finished up the right wing skin. Nothing to brag about here except that its done and I can finally move on to other parts.
Category: 16) Top Wing Skins
Today Corey & I really did got at the right wing. I’d say we did probably about 3/4 to 7/8s of all the rivets to be done. I also put some conduit in the ribs. I don’t think I posted before, but I am using the 5/8″ black conduit from Van’s. I ordered 50′ of it and I have ALOT left over. After Corey left, I reorganized my toolbox a bit and really cleaned it out. This was well needed to be done. I also ended up making a wood block to hold my countersinks. I am not sure why I didn’t do this before.
So I’ve been slacking pretty hard on the updates as well as slacking on working on the plane. I really don’t recall any specifics other than alot of dimpling, sanding, priming and riveting. I have a couple of dings in the skin which im not thrilled about, but I will take care of once it becomes time to paint. Once I got the the left skin riveted, I installed some 5/8″ conduit as well as the Pitot & AOA lines.
