Brief Description: Worked on cabin to fuselage skin and primed roof p
Finished riveting the left cabin to fuselage skin and moved to the right side removed from plane and deburred all rivet holes and primed back side. It was a hot day today 69 f. so I took the time to prep all the cabin to fuselage parts that I have yet to work with and cleaned, and went over it with the green pad then primed it out side in the fresh air. The took some time to go and put a new window in the Merlin (its my other plane that I have to fly in while I build this one) After my return from the airport I installed the right skin on the cabin to fuselage. I used 470-4-7 rivets on the bottom of the cabin and 470-4-6 for the back where the manual calls out for 470-4-5 and I used 426-4-6 on the edge by the door where the manual calls out for 426-4-5. I like to check my work from time to time but am doing good with knowing if the rivet is right or not. I did not rivet the back edge of the cabin to fuselage skin that over laps the right side skin of the fuselage as I still will need access to the inside of the fuselage for the controls. Riveted sides of cabin top and fuselage skin to bulkhead one. Manual dose not tell you when to do it but now that I am starting on the skin for the cabin to fuselage on top it can be done. Cut out notch in PK-345 and PK-336 drilled and attached with clecos. Laid out and drilled PG-222 and PG-223 on top of fuselage.
