appears to be high quality work!

That primed VS spar looks beautiful. Did you use a squeezer or a rivet gun? Nice uniform riveting unlike mine. Time to order the wings :)

Thanks!

Squeezer for most of it, the ones near the hinge brackets I couldn't get the squeezer on.


I did have an oopsie figure 8 while dimpling the skin, really upset me lol, but drill two adjacent holes and move on, I'm building to fly not to show. I think getting into a rhythm is both good and bad, I was nervous on the skin rivets, had to mentally do each step on every rivet,

Just old, I think 8 years since its ran, 25 since its flown. 1500 tt on it. 1200 in a piper, 200 in a BD-4. But it was a good price, included, pretty much engine mount forward.

I would use the term lossely. Propr strike? Looks more like a movie prop.

But like all of us, it might just clean up nice.
