My dad (AKA free helper) recommended to me that I needed more light on the other wing to help him buck those rivets. Not wanting to piss off a great helper, I splurged for yet another $10 (with bulbs) shop light at Home Depot. It did make a drastic improvement in lighting up the garage.


Next I spent a while taking any twist out of the left wing. It took a two iterations of putting in all of the clecoes on the wing skins, so my hands are killing me now. But everything is exactly perfect now. I really lucked out on the first wing with everything going back together exactly level/plumb. This left wing took a lot of extra work.

On a side note today, while walking to the hangar at KDMW for my EAA meeting, I saw one of Donald Trumps helicopters winding up. Supposedly there is a proposed casino sight in Gettysburg, PA that he is looking at developing and his helicopters fly into DMW quite regularly. Must be nice! At the EAA meeting there was a presentation on ADS-B. Definitely neat technology, but the transition to it is going to take a while. Something to keep my eye on, but I doubt it will be cost effective compared to a mode C transponder when my time comes to buy.
