Countersunk all HS spar/skin holes. 1.5 hours. My triceps hurt from pressing down on the drill. Now just a few countersink ops in the rear spar and spar doubler (as per detail!) and then it's time to prime.

Visited the Plane Talk hanger in Lockhart (50R) today. The Plane Talk guys are a bunch of experienced pilots and kit builders. They've got a 6 in the hanger, and an 8 under construction. Brought ribs and spars for an appraisal of my finishing work. So far so good. It's great to have a resource like this in the neighborhood. It's 40 miles one/way (now that the office moved), but it makes for a nice long lunch.
