Lots of little stuff today

My helper came to the hangar today and we got a lot of little things done - the last couple of floorboard straps were drilled, painted and installed.

He also helped me remove the fuel tank because I wanted to bead blast the steel straps (see below).

He wanted to hang the strap on the "paint tree".

Which he did and the primer was sprayed.

Also, the last dozen countersunk holes were drilled in the floorboards and the front and back spar carry-through braces were drilled.

Overall, it was a productive afternoon. More soon. Enjoy
