Priming horizontal stabilizer

Category: Horizontal Stabilizer (Total 28½h) — Steffen @ 19:25 — Hours: 8

Today was my first long day in the shop. I started with matchdrilling the right side of the stabilizer. Then I took it apart and deburred it all.

After I was done deburring everything, I took everything with me to where I work. I decided to do all the priming out there, since we have the facilities for it. Its only about 20 minutes away. I use Akzo epoxy primer.

After I was done priming everything, I let it all dry up for about an hour, before I brought it home. It feels great to have it all primed, tomorrow will be fun, putting it all together! 😀
