To-do list

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve worked on the project. Family parties and graduations and stuff have been popping up and work has gotten very busy so I haven’t had any time to get to the garage. However, I put together a list of what needs to be done on the wings to close them out. 

  • Remove ailerons/flaps
  • Dimple/surface-prep aileron braces
  • Prep aileron reinforcement brackets for the service bulletin 
  • Dimple top skin for aileron brace flush rivets
  • Dimple/rivet flap hinges to bottom skin
  • Install pvc wiring conduit through lightening holes
  • Dimple/prime/edge finish the remaining left and right bottom skins 
  • Install nutplates for last access panels
  • Rivet aileron brackets
  • Dimple remaining ribs
  • Rivet bottom skin

It seems like a long list but it’s pretty standard stuff. I’m going to hold off on riveting the bottom skin for quite a while, however everything else can probably be completed in a day of solid work. I didn’t include the wingtip work in this list because I’m planning on holding off on that for a long time as well. With the wiring conduit in the wing I should have no issues wiring up my landing/nav/strobe lights later on. 

Here’s the current status of the shop. ‘Till next time!
