Fittings painted

We've had some really nice flying weather lately and I took the opportunity to put some black PPG urethane on most of the fittings.

Here are a bunch of universal fittings drying on the rack.

I still have a few more to go, but the bulk of them were finished today. One or two have to be repainted where I missed a spot, but it's nice to see black on the fittings. Soon, reassembly can begin.

Since the weather was so nice, I took a long weekend and went to the 2008 Bucker fly-in. My Bucker Jungmann is second on the left. We had nearly ten percent of the Bucker fleet in one location and it was a great event.

More soon
