Brief Description:  Spring Cleaning

Yep, Spring Cleaning. While I had occasionally come in over the last semester and did a bit here or a part there, I hadn't really bothered to clean the floors or put tools consistently back in their place. Also, I had several spots in the plan sequence going at once. That was partly so I could plan the avionics installations and also I couldn't sit on the cold concrete (especially when it was covered with a layer of ice) long enough to dimple the fuselage skins for riveting. I'm looking forward to consolidating the main fuselage this summer, closing up the tail cone, and getting a start on the wings.

In the meantime, and before I start up again, I've begun reorganizing the hangar. First I tossed a lot of the containers that had accumulated. Next I moved things around and cleaned the floor of aluminum shavings, rivets, and grit brought in by the wind. Then I began rearranging the stuff on the hangar floor.

In the first shot you see the forward fuselage section flanked by a rolling rack and the mid-fuselage section set vertically on stands so I can work on the bottom skins. The fuselage sections completely obscure the filing cabinet, desk, and electrical workstation up agains the far wall, and the red work-light next to the mid-fuselage nearly obscures the parts rack and tool chest back there. Good thing, too, as they are piled with parts and tools that I need to reorganize. Hard to believe, but there's also an 8' table back there, also piled with small stuff; you can see a bit of it between the fuselage sections. In front of them are one of the wing spars, also carrying a bit of stuff that needs to be organized, and in front of that is one of the shipping crates (finishing kit, as I recall) that has been flipped to become a low work table and eventually the pre-gear support for the fuselage. Next to it is my tool organizer and we'll ignore the stuff to the right until the next picture. Then there is the wing stand holding the other spar (and I swear the boxes on the spar are super light; they onl
