Build Diary 02-March-05

Very good progress tonight. I reviewed my spraying last night - it could have been better a few runs. But they will be rubbed down when I do the top interior coat.

I then started with my rivet squeezer, first the seat backs. I squeezed all the rivets around the seat back apart from the brace hinge. Which I could not reach with the squeezer. Next the seat brace was completed, and the brake pedals along with the elevator bell crank (F-635). Also put some rivets into the tunnel cover, I could not get to all of them - so have decided to continue another evening with the rivet gun.

Very pleased with my progress this evening - all this for 3 hrs work.
