    rainy days are good for working in the shop. I got the nose ribs attached to the wing. I then made a template for the leading edge wrap for the center section and used it to cut out the leading edge plywood. it is strapped and clamped to the leading edge now to form the shape.

    the second coat of varnish is on the inside of the plywood leading edge and the area it will cover and had time to get the first coat of varnish on the area that will be covered by the leading edge plywood on the wing during lunch today.

    It has been a hectic couple of weeks. The little piet hasn't gotten much attention. I did get a few minutes to measure and cut some gusset strips and mix some T-88 for the top of the center section.
