I kind of wish I’d kept going on these tiedowns last night, because there was very, very little left to do on them. Tonight I just clamped the nutplates in placed, drilled the rivet holes for the nutplates, and countersunk the backside of the spacers for the nutplate rivets. Pretty simple, and not very time-consuming. After just over half an hour, the tiedown brackets and spacers were ready to be cleaned and primed.
I guess I’ll be doing a lot of priming this weekend; I’ve got these pieces, and I still have to sand down and reshoot the rear spars that I had primer flaking off of a couple weeks ago.
