Pics of Me Working
Friday April 30, 2021
The paint on the forward deck parts came out okay...there are some impurities here and there and a little unevenness in places. It's okay, though, because these parts will be hidden underneath the canopy most of the time. I probably need to do most of my painting with the garage door closed so dust and other stuff can't get blown in by the wind.
I riveted the seal support angles to the outboard subpanels.
I riveted the seal support angle and the three ribs to the center subpanel. I am not planning to install the canopy jettison capability, so I am not installing the F-697.
Then I deburred and dimpled the F-745 ribs.
Finally, I prepped, primed, and partially painted the F-745 ribs. I may have to trim these when I install my avionics.
I also drilled holes for the nutplates, prepped, primed, and painted the F-721C and F-721D instrument panel attach angles. Once these are dry, I can install the nutplates and rivet them to the F-721A side decks.
