So tonight we finished up the work on the wings and their time at Daves shop has come to an end. Soon they will be making their trip home where we can do the final prep, cover and paint. There is still a lot of work to do but I am excited to have them a few steps away and to start the long walk down the final stretch that will result in a flying airplane.

We finished up installing the lower wing leading edges, wing tips, hinges and bell cranks. As Dave pointed out, it is nice installing stuff for the final time. Next step is the aileron coves and these babies will be ready for cover.

I apologize for not having any pictures, I did take them but my POC Motorola Droid 3 wont let me retrieve the pics. Ugh I hate Motorola and phone contracts. Pics to come.

I look at these pictures and can’t help but giggle. Ok seriously, having varnished the lower wings, they now look like a real set of wings. Here we are fitting the leading edges.
