Progress up front
Brian Eberle sanded the front instrument panel and gave it a last coat of varnish.
Then we worked on installing the oil tank.
There are three AN3 bolts which pass through the bearer support. Notice the cutout - this is for the U-bolt brackets that secure the right engine bearer.
The bottom of the oil tank is screwed to the firewall by three AN3bolts and nuts.
The last thing we did that night was to put the Hisso back in its rightful place!
Now comes the fun part - hooking up all the fuel, oil and coolant hoses.
On Thursday night, while I was away (work), Brian and Christy Eberle sanded the lower wings. They are now ready for the first coat of Poly Tone! Ron is planning on spraying them this weekend...if the weather cooperates.
