Aileron Cove Finished



Since last post - several twelve-hour days. Last trailing edge brace fabricated & installed. Wheels removed from plane, bearings checked, replaced, mostly back together. And the aileron cove, including all the false rib supports, installed as of yesterday. (This took six days last time - I cut it down to two this time.) Have to rework the leading edge tip metal again, carrying the first two bays back to the spar, but that's all right. Really.

So exhausted. Should get to work. Coffee not fixing this. Urrgh.

Take a break Wing, being tired is NOT the time to do major work inside the wing structure... Get a breath, another cup of coffee, and sit on the front porch for a bit! :-)
