Deburred and dimpled the bottom wing skins and prepared them for priming.
Primed the wing skins, cleaned up the shop a bit. Removed the ailerons from the wings and set the right wing on the table getting ready to install the bottom skins.
Installed the mount for the Tru-Trak pitch servo. I'm not buying the servo just yet but Tru-Trak gave me the mount so that I could put it in while it was still fairly easy to get to.
Did a pretty major cleanup of the garage, and drilled the holes for the engine mount.
Aligned and drilled the flap hinge to the right wing. Started riveting the bottom skins to the right wing.
