Fuselage fittings

I had the pleasure of working on Richard Epton's delightfull Bucker Bestmann yesterday when he mentioned that he would gladly "knock the rust of your Jenny fittings". So, I took him up on the offer.....

Kidding aside, Richard is going to bead blast the fittings and give them a good coat of PPG epoxy primer DP90.

Here's a close up of the fittings in the "before" state. I'll post the "after " pictures as soon as he has them finished.

Had a chance to mate the fin to the stabilizer today. I'll post these pictures later as well.

Till then
