14.2.1 Sanding

This entry is part 5 of 38 in the series 14 - Final Assembly / FInishing

I hate sanding!!! Just spent the last week sanding in prep for the final priming. Between sanding, filling, sanding, filling, sanding, filling… I’m just done. No pictures because there’s just nothing worth taking a picture of. But… I finally got the copilot wing figured out. Well, maybe not “figured out” but it’s right. I don’t know if it was a high or a low spot, but now it’s true.

Hopefully, before I leave, we’ll at least have the final coat of gray. The biggest problem now is heat. We had to quit at 3pm today. I went to pick up a countersink bit and the thermometer in the Explorer read 116 at 4pm today. And yes, that’s Fahrenheit. At these temps, the primer will kick before we can spray it.
