Wow...a website update! No I have not been slacking -- I've been working on various updates but quite honestly there isn't a whole lot of time for website updates. When I got out to Winder I'm getting home pretty late and I honestly don't have time to update the site. Anyway..this weekend we went over to Rome for mother's day which is why I didn't get anything done then. Today I need to mow the lawn so I didn't go to the airport but decided to work on the empennage before and after I did the lawn chores. I got the rudder top tip and both elevator tips riveted on. I then filled over the lead counterweights on the elevators. I'm using the West System fairing filler for this. I'll sand it all down. There was actually a little gap between the glass and the weight so I filled the gap with cotton flox.
And here's the finger-printed rudder tip installed. You can see here that I'll need to fill the front end of the tip. It was either fill the front or the rear and I figured the front would be much easier.
