Right Outboard Bottom Wing Riveted/ Right Wing Done!
Both the Left and Right Wings are Done! The electrical kit just arrived so that's next, followed by wing mounting on Friday....
Pausing for a break... You can see how we used safety wire, tied to the ceiling, to help peel the skin back. We worked from the top down and out, with the seam in the middle saved for last. Yes, this is a real pain, but it's done!
Udo and I are back at it. Here we are about to get started.
