Short Description:  Wingtips, floorboards, intrument panel

Total of 6 showed up. Terry, Bryan, Nick, Derek, Jordan and Eric. We didn't clean the tanks, we'll do that next time. Instead 4 of us worked on cutting & grinding metal, then welding metal plates to reinforce the rudder petal mounts. We cut and glued (T-88) a ply wood plate to mount the Pitot / Static tubes to at rib #7, 10" behind the leading edge. We started the counter sinking on the left wing tip, but the cutter must have been dulled from doing the right wing tip. It just wasn't doing the job. New tool next time will finish it up.

I brought the ply floor boards home as templates. I'll cut the aluminum floor board covers for fitting next time. We need to epoxy varnish the plywood floor boards also. We should then be able to install the rudder pedals, brakes, brake lines, and control system. Brian and Nick will continue with the instrument panel next time. We will also tackle the fuel tanks, not looking forward to that one. Once the tanks are bonded in place we should remove the wings and begin prep for covering.

With that welding job done we should now be able to move forward on the fuselage. We are making progress.
