Still here. Some busy times here, between some vehicular issues and going out of town this past weekend. I didn’t have a ton of time tonight, but I wanted to get out in the garage and do something. Luckily, I had a nice, easy task to perform: dimpling, prepping, and priming the rudder stiffeners. Last time, I had miscut a couple stiffeners, but after contacting Van’s, it turns out they’re still usable, so I went ahead with them instead of ordering more new stuff. Beyond that, the day was pretty simple.
I did make one little mistake: Since I was trying to wrap things up, I didn’t wait long enough between cleaning the stiffeners and priming them. Even though I blew them off with the air gun, there was apparently still some moisture present, as the primer bubbled up in a couple places. So I guess I’ll have to go back and sand/reprime some areas tomorrow.
No pics today, sorry.
