Top skin prep

Hours: 1.5 | Posted in Upper Fuse & Skins

Sprayed primer on the forward top skin, and left to dry overnight.  Located the steel strip from which the rudder pedal links are to be cut; marked and cut those, drilled the holes, and rounded the ends on the bench grinder.  Sanded them down, and sprayed a coat of primer to keep them from re-rusting.  Tomorrow I’ll spray a topcoat on them, and then they will be installed prior to riveting the top skin, to take advantage of easier access.
