My dad came to visit for the weekend - got to see the kids play baseball etc. - had a nice time. But, after he went home, it was back to work cutting out the turtledeck lightening holes.

I cut a 1 in. hole in the plywood, and the outline was cut with the jig saw.

The inside was sanded with the little spindle sander.

And the bigger curves used the larger sanding sleeve. After this was finished, the outside was sanded to the line and everything smoothed by hand with 220 grit sandpaper. I was able to get all the holes cut today. More tomorow....
