More flap prep

Hours: 6.4 | Posted in Flaps

Took advantage of a day off work–probably the last for awhile with the semester starting next week.  Hopefully progress won’t come to as dreadful of a stop as it did last school year, but I lose at least two nights a week, often more, from here to the end of May ’10.

Countersunk the spars and TE wedges, then dimpled all the skins & ribs, followed by several hours swimming in etch.  These flaps have a great lot of parts.  Ready for priming, but not enough time before sunset to get it done, and past experience priming in the dark wasn’t a pleasant experience.
