Light Duty

Last Thursday was the last day I worked on the plane. I'm slowly working off the odd rivet here and there, and have a tray of parts to do the final prepping on for priming and installation. I'm planning on making a pattern from the top skin of the canopy frame to see if I can make a metal fairing for the front of the canopy instead of the usual fiberglass lay-up.

It's firewood season now that the logger finished taking some pines off the property. I skidded some logs up to the front of the house for chain sawing into fire wood. It's definitely black fly season, too! I've been stuck under the Elantra for the last couple of days putting a new clutch in... Man do I hate the smell of Hypoid gear oil!
