Brief Description:  Wheel Pants

I removed the main gear fairings after applying trailing edge filler. I sanded the filler to shape and finalized the entire trailing edge. The main gear wheel pants, gear leg fairing and intersection fairings are complete except for priming and final sanding. That'll wait until warmer temps this spring.

As I mentioned a few days ago, I decided to increase the nose gear bolt for better tug or tow bar capture. I decided to decrease the depth of the aluminum spacer block and install a steel spacer on the hex bolt. I also installed a slightly longer set of bolts that bring the head flush with the outside of the wheel pant. The nose gear pant and gear leg fairing are complete except for priming.

Lastly, I began fabricating wooded dampener for the three gear legs. I did this to my -6 decades ago after I experienced significant wobble at lower taxi speeds. After reading reports of similar shimmy with the -10, I decided to do the modification. It's an easy mod, so why not?
