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.
