I still have to add the small ground wire
from the fuel tank. I wiped away a little
area of primer...
...then cut a circle out of masking tape and
placed it over the rivet hole. Next I spayed
more primer to clean it up...
Then removed the tape. It didn't get the
nice perfect circle like I wanted, but who
When I rivet the rounded L angle to the
front of the spar, I'll attach the ground
wire with the rivet. The other end gets
riveted to the tab on the tank.
Next I made the L stiffener that goes under
the root skin.
As you can see I fluted the L to match the
curve of the skin. Using a straight L would
work, but why not make it perfect and match
the curve of the skin??
Holes are drilled out for the A4 rivets.
See how the skin curves?
I played around with the darn wingtip again.
There's just no way to get rid of this gap.
I have the same gap between the skin and the
nose ribs too, but I just could not pull the
skin any tighter. So I think I'll just have
to live with this gap on the tip.
