Today I hit a huge milestone! With the help of my fiancée Britney and my friend Mina, we were able to close out the final skin on the wings.
With all that’s going on, I was worried that I wouldn’t make much progress on the project, which has turned out to be somewhat true. But when I do get to a new milestone, it feels amazing.
After we wrapped up the final rivets, Mina helped me put the wings back in the cradle. I couldn’t help but take a wide angle pic of the whole hangar. There is a lot more space now that the wing isn’t on the saw horses.
There’s still lots to do on the project, but getting to this point has been a great adventure!

Could you contact me about the brake/roller/shear tool?
Hey Vince, yes I’m currently out of town, but can meet you down here anytime after the 25th. Happy to return it.
I’m at E16 all day today 12/27. I can give your the brake back if you’re available.
