Build Diary 27/28-December-05

Christmas is over, and Jo has got me lots of bits for my RV project and some tools - she is great. Topcoat painted the instrument sub-panel, panel brace and started to rivet it into place.

Pleased with the topcoat painting the fuse side rails.

Riveting the instrument sub-panel.
These rivets went in very well considering the position they are in.
Two flush rivets bu the canopy hinge.
Instrument brace to firewall rivets.
Instrument panel brace to firewall rivets.

I fitted this tape to protect the paint from the bucking bar and rivet gun.
One half of the instrument sub-panel fitted.

Second side fitted.
