On to doping

Got top and bottom fabric on, ironed taut, and top is doped with first layer of dope. Touch-up on fuselage with dope and silver accomplished.

Utterly, totally exhausted. Nitrate thinner dissolves nitrile gloves in under five seconds, burns like hell when it gets in cuts on hand not adequately protected by barrier cream. Breaking mask seal by turning head and walking into hangar after other plane had fabric work done, sans respirator, left me feeling like I was running, missed the corner, hit the wall. Well, except my nose isn't feeling crunchy and bloody, but otherwise good analogy.

Yay for cottage cheese - dinner without thought or prep. Yay for bed. G'night.
