Well Saturday was a big day. A lot of learning, a lot of bad rivets and a lot of drilling and replacing rivets.
Dad was helping me out all day and what a great help, Thanks Dad! We worked steadily through a steep learning curve. Adding rivets, drilling out bad ones. and having some really great fun doing it.
There a still a couple of not so good rivets in the mix, but not bad enough to drill out. All in all however a really great day.
I finished up the VS today (Sunday) and it took a fair amount of patience, but I am happy with the result. The primer that I chose is proving to be a good selection from the colour to its resilience to scratching.
