    Well progress is still moving forward. Still need to stress test the wing, I really hope to get that done in the next couple weeks, that way I know its good and can move on to fill, sanding, and painting the wing and putting it in the back shop to get onto the rest of the airplane! I took...

    Stay at home order still in place, however I am on call incase we have any aircraft movements pop up. So progress continues! I had one little incident with the epoxy exotherming a little quicker than I anticipated so before disaster struck I removed the fabric and started over. However this...

    Got a few things done the past few days. Started fabricating the fuel tank straps, in preparation for mocking up the fuel system. Made a few carbon fiber custom sanding blocks to help with profiling the leading edge. Started on the profiling of the wing tips. Thanks for stopping by! Mark

    Could I do this aviation job?

    Please for the love of all things aviation holy, do yourself a favor and better educate yourself! Instead of googling this S&@t maybe go talk to some of us A&P's (in my case AME, Canadian equivalent), grease monkey? Do you even know what it takes to maintain todays fleet of aircraft? I have more...

    The progress continues. I needed to radius the wing tips to match the drawing and I didn't feel that cutting the tip shape with a jig saw then sanding it with the aluminum plate that's sandwiched in there would be much fun so I built a "radius bar" of sorts for my router. Worked great. Now I'm...

    Filler??

    That is exactly the plan. The original question was to just rid of a few valleys, and imperfections to prevent any sharp edges prior to the cover of fiberglass.

    Filler??

    I keep my basement at an average of 25-30% RH, I do my very best to keep it as low as possible until all surfaces are stained an sealed.

    Filler??

    Good day all, I am beginning to start some light filling on my wing to rid it of a few imperfections. I was planning on using west system, mixed with west systems 410 micro light. But I've read that it can be affected by elevated temperatures. I was planning on using this on my wing, and part of...

    Hey all! Hopefully everyone is safe from this craziness that is going. I'm on company mandated self isolation for 14 days, because I was vacationing in Maine for a week. Which is kind of neat in a way, I get 14 days paid off to work on my airplane! Benn taking advantage of it and work 8-10 hrs a...

    O-200 Remote Oil Tank

    Oh absolutely! I don't have any pictures on my phone of the final product but will take some and post, the entire assembly installed without the hoses came in under 1 pound! Very pleased. If I can find a market for these I might sell them as Ive had 3 inquires for them. Thanks Mark
