Finished wing skins

Category: 3: Wings (Total 309h),Fuel tanks — Steffen @ 20:16 — Hours: 2.5

I got the last two skins primed monday after work. It took me about 45 minutes. I also primed all the wing access panels. Today I started out by dimpling these access panels. Took me 5 minutes with the pneumatic squeezer…

Then I dimpled the skins, again I used the pneumatic squeezer around the edges (except the aft edge), and the c-frame dimpler for the rest.

The finished left outer skin..

All the top skins clecoed in place, ready for riveting…

Ok, the skins are ready to rivet, but I want to build the fuel tanks and install them before I rivet. I countersank all the skin to baffle holes according to the plans, before calling it a night…
