January, 2005

January 8, 2005 - 2.5 hours
Worked on a little wiring. I connected a few more points to my annunciator panel.

January 9, 2005 - 1.5 hours
Sanded on the rear canopy skirt a little and then mixed up a litttle filler and smeared it around.

January 10, 2005 - 0.75 hours
Sanded the filler on the rear canopy skirt from yesterday and mixed up a little more. This is a little bit too much trial an error for me but I'm narrowing down on it. Hopefully I'll be able to put this canopy to bed before too long.

January 11, 2005 - 0.5 hours
Sanded the canopy skirt some more, and I think I may have put the last batch of filler on it.

January 11, 2005 - 0.5 hours
Hooked up the wires to the GPS connector. Since I can't install the GPS until the forward top skin is on I put the wires in a Mate-n-lok connector.

January 12, 2005 - 0.6 hours
Soldered together my little voltage regulator and tested to make sure it would work. This voltage regulator is for the lamp in the autopilot and the comm radio.

This is basically a small LM317 voltage regulator with a couple of small resistors to set the voltage all soldered and shrink wrapped.

January 22, 2005 - 1 hours
Sprayed a coat of surfacing primer on the aft canopy skirt.

January 23, 2005 - 0.75 hours
Sanded the coat of primer that I put on yesterday and then mixed up a batch of epoxy/micro ballons and filled some of the bigger pin holes and scratches that showed up in the primer. It's hard to see those things in the fiberglass but they show up really well in the primer.

January 24, 2005 - 0.45 hours
Sanded on the skirt some more. I hope that all the holes and scratches are filled and I can get this thing done with just a couple more coats of primer. We'll see.

January 30, 2005 - 0.75 hours
Put on another coat of primer on the aft canopy skirt
