Here are the wing ribs prior to priming. Squire is, as always, extremely excited to be part of the priming process. If only I could get him to use the HVLP gun. Due to my poor estimation of primer required, priming took more than twice as long as it should have. I really should take notes so I can properly estimate these things….
My first batch of primer got me almost half way. In a previous post, I mentioned some poor performance of the HVLP gun. After the thorough cleaning and care I gave it last week, it performed better than it ever has, and I couldn’t be happier with this priming job!
Finally the ribs and spars are hung on the wing stand! The outboard ribs still need to be fitted as I don’t have the main spars correctly attached to the stand. I wanted to see how everything looked first, and give it some thought before proceeding. Regardless, I’m very happy with the progress this weekend. Now I need to redo the tie down brackets, and order conduit.
