Today was more… You guessed it… Sanding. Luckily we had a visitor to make the day a bit more fun. Thanks Vic for coming over.
We started by taking the wax and aluminum out of the seams then got right down to contour sanding. This was Vic’s first time helping in the Garaggio, as well as first time contouring. I was extremely impressed at his ability to contour. His finesse and touch is outstanding. I think he even enjoyed it, as much as one can enjoy contouring.
The bottom of the fuselage is looking really good so far. I have a bit more to do with some seam areas and maybe some tweaking along the hinge edges of the gear doors and landing brake. After that we will pay some attention to the intake inlet. Here is a photo of the gear leg intersection fairings.
