Spent the last two days constructing my wing cradle. Modified mine a bit to save on materials. Added rollers, they should pay for themselves quickly.
Two days work 2/25-26.
Measured and cut aileron pushrods. Drilled rivet holes for rod end attachment. Deburred and scuffed pushrods.
Filled all blind rivets in ailerons and flaps with microfill epoxy.
Finished riveting left flap skin to spar flange. I’m postponing riveting the hinges until I can confirm proper alignment with the wing hinge.
Alierons and flaps complete!
Two days work 2/21-2/22/15.
Finished riveting left flap skins to ribs. Match drilled left flap hinge.
Countersunk left flap spar flange. Riveted left flap spar to ribs.
Finished riveting left aileron – complete.
Made shims for aft rib to skin gap and riveted in place. Bent flap skin trailing edge.
Riveted bottom left flap.
Finished riveting right flap spar and top skin.
Had to rig it with bungies to relax the top skin curve to get the spar blind rivets set flush. I needed a third hand.
Continued riveting the left aileron. Only the bottom spar rivets left to complete.
