Good work, Jerry. I know it will be something to see those wings whole when you get done.

A good friend of mine sent me a couple of my aerial photos from my December 29th flight that are part of my personal web pages. I took the hint and reworked all of those hazy aerial photos and reposted them to the server. You can all check them out at the link below. I was amazed at the results. http://home.earthlink.net/~n2prise/f021229a.htmAs for yesterday's weather, I decided not work with the cleaning project, but instead remembered that I needed to scuff up the edges of the fuel tank ribs and end plates. I also primed the two end pieces that secure the front of the fuel tanks to the fuselage. No pix of these, so don't go looking. I also had another RV builder over for a short visit. He just received his RV-8 wing kit and was looking for ideas and shortcuts.Jerry K. ThorneEast Ridge, TN.

This time it is to South Florida on a job hunt. If all goes well, it will be to finalize the deal and begin product familiarization with a new company. I will log on from on the road and update you all.Jerry K. ThorneEast Ridge, TN.
