September 5, 2018 Build time 16.0 Total time 453.0
So gap fairings are now installed. Thought I would start the ailerons. Cut the stiffeners and cleaned them up. No work on Labor Day just cleaned my area so I could show off to family and friends what an airplane factory looks like! 😂
So Tuesday I back riveted stiffeners after I dimpled the skins and stiffeners. Then I went to trial fit the skins and … STUPID ME didn’t verify I had the right skins or the right sides. Well, two of the skins I dimpled and installed the stiffeners on the wrong side. So I tell myself that sometimes mistakes are made on the production floor at aircraft plants and production must go on. I ordered two new skins from Van’s and set the ailerons aside and started the flaps. Learn from this and build ON!

Where are you at on the build? Burn out a bit and taking a break? 😉
Not at all, working on getting my tanks sealed. Can’t rivet the bottom skins on til I get these tanks sealed and mounted.
