Priming Leading Edge Ribs   January 13th, 2008

I have put both fuel tanks away, and I am ready to go back to the leading edges. I spend all day today priming the ribs and skins. I am still using the Stewart Systems water-based primer.

The wing jig was briefly converted into a rib-holder. I draped tarps on both wing skeletons to keep paint from getting on them.

After speaking to an AFS rep at Oshkosh last summer, I am going to wait for about a week until I start putting the leading edges together. Given the relatively cold weather, this should be plenty of time for the primer to harden.
