Brief Description:  Left Wing, lower skin

Trimmed all, and all was good. Only problem was my wonderful plan to cut all the 1" tapes for the joins at a 45 degree bias so they could be longer. Peeling off such tapes is hopeless, they kept breaking at an angle of 45 degrees...

Sanded TE joggle and applied dry micro, roughly underfilled.

After a break during which the micro greened off nicely broke off the glue blocks, causing huge divots off the table, and congratulated myself for dislodging jig #5 only. Bit less hot glue next time.

Took Right Wing down from storage, and attempted to put Left Wing where it was. It is now too heavy, and I could feel the foam of the TE getting squashed. Then all the jigs fell off. Hmmmmm. Made up some nose jigs so I could store it nose down, but now it doesn't fit between the top shelf and the roof. Hmmmm. Modified the nose jigs and added cross bars so I could tie it down nicely on the floor until I figure out how to hoist it to the roof. May need to add top skin first.
