2 hrs, 46 rivets
Another evening at the hangar.
We proved that the left tank is leak free. The balloon stayed inflated the same amount for two days. Yee Haw!
Riveted tank bracket nutplates. So the wings are ready to attach.
Riveted fairings to HS, VS, rudder cap.
Attached left elevator. Need to get the trim servo wiring hooked up.

Spent 3 hours Tuesday night priming various control surface fairings. HS, VS, spinner, etc.
In this heat, the K36 fast catalyst is not usable. It sets up in the gun and that makes it really hard to spray.

Another 2 hours Monday, marked and trimmed the empennage fairing Prepped various fairings for painting.
