Feb 19 -- Dimple & Prime Left Elevator

Weekends are priming days, because there's light outside (and I get into enough trouble about the smell of fresh primer just from bringing the parts back into the Garage).

Today I primed the stiffeners after masking off the side that will face the elevator skin. Plan to use ProSeal between them and the skin, in order to prevent vibration caused by cracking.

Next up was dimpling the skin, with Karin's help. Then I scuffed the inside skin, cleaned with Coleman fuel, and masked off areas where ProSeal will be applied. Oh, and of course primed the inside of the skin.

Some more drying time and riveting can begin.

Total Time: 2.5 Hours
