Gear goes together & firewall fabrication

"Where did the wheels go?" Brighton asked.
"I have to put them back on."
"Can I help?"

With Brighton's help, we got the gear back on the aeroplane today.

Here is a picture of the finished peach basket.

The bracing wires needed to be soldered yet, so I worked on them until the rest of the kids got off the school bus. Then it was homework time, dinner time and off to their baseball practice.

Also, I had time to cut out the galvanized steel firewall.

There are a couple of bends in it.

With a little trimming, I think it will fit just fine.

Also put a coat of varnish on the back side of the fuel tank slats.
