Brief Description: Priming: Firewall stiffeners and center section pa
Cut the extra material out of the control stick brackets as recommended by the plans. Gave all firewall, center section, and pitot tube mast raw Al parts a final going over to smooth and polish the edges with Scotch Brite pads, wheels, etc. Washed the parts w/Dawn & water, roughing up the surface with Scotch Brite pad. Etched the parts with the Stewart Systems Al cleaner/degreaser. Set up the wire mesh screen on sawhorses for spraying the SS primer/sealer, and did that.
After clean up and dinner, parts were dry enough to assemble the firewall components with clecoes. Back riveted the brake line bracket to the firewall.
