Final preparation, fitting and riveting of the skin to the VS structure was done today. Everything went together beautifully. I’d done extensive research, detailed review and careful pre-fitting to be certain that I had confidence in a process that would – and did – produce my intended result.
I was privileged to have a visit from a fellow EAA Chapter 430 member and Technical Counselor – Harry Cook. Together we reviewed my build environment and progress. I was pleased to receive positive feedback relative to my understanding of what I’m doing and workmanship involving the vertical stabilizer to the point immediately prior to covering.
