More progress

The beads were rolled into the small access door last night.

Also, Brian and Ron stitched a few more ribs.  Only 4 more ribs to go and the entire set of wings will be stitched.

 

I started burnishing the upper cowl.


And the reinforcing clips were made from some .032 sheet metal.


The curve on the end was rough cut with tin snips.  Smoothing with a file is necessary.

Only had a few hours at the shop.  Hope to get back there later this week.  Til then...enjoy

Brian
