Our good friends from Virginia stopped by to celebrate Erin's birthday, and Steve offered to help make some metal instead of sawdust for a change.
We'd received the replacement HS-702, so amid a bunch of head-scratching got it trimmed, drilled, bent, deburred & dimpled. Unfortunately we won't be riveting the HS together until the new Service Bulletin doubler planes arrive from Vans with our wing kit.
Steve was a quick study - and was punished for it by getting to deburr 3 spars & the HS skin.
I still can't quite shake the jitters of countersinking , but knocked out the spar doubler with no problems.
While I was countersinking & edge deburring, Steve finished deburring and moved on to dimple the spars & skin.
VS parts + HS replacement spar ready to prime (above), primed (below)!
