1/28/18 c to d skin
over the past week I’ve trimmed, deburred, primed, and riveted into place the c to d skin. Side rails and top motor mount. I’ve also taken care of priming the lower half of the forward fuselage skins. Only took one picture it’s not ver good as I was in a rush to get home. I’ll add more later this week.
A bit more backdrilling today and I made some strips to sandwich between the firewall. Weather is too cold to prime anything so I’ll just keep working on a few odds and ends till it warms up.
my better half helped me get some holes drilled in the forward fuselage today. Getting closer to to pulling it apart to prime and deburr
back drilled the rest of the holes needs for c to b skin. Started fitting skin a to b. Clamps and Cleo’s in place. It’s a bit difficult to work on this section alone. I’ll enlist the help of my better and shorter half. The angles on the front of the firewall are temporary to help stiffen it during construction.
After the skins are drilled it’ll be time to start disassembly so I can dimple countersink trim and deburr prior to riveting.

Made templates with clear Mylar for the new fuselage skins and cut them out. Also cut the metal for both and attached c to b skins temporarily.
