Painting the replacement partsTimer icon3h

July 22, 2022

Today I was preparing the parts for the left elevator.

Not much, mostly drilling / deburring / scuffing and priming the remaining parts for the left elevator. Now that I have accurate scales, I weighted the parts to see how much primer I add. It came to about 2-3%, which is quite a bit. I don't think I was priming too thick this time, but maybe.

Also, finally got my private pilot certificate (which is what kept me busy the last week)!

The parts are scuffed. The parts are primed.
