Task: Prepared HS for priming
priming VS-164 with MS 7220 self-etching primer I was able
to convince my father to come out and help me this evening
with the HS. We started with the HS-411 assembly which had
to be riveted. I set the first three, he did the last three.
They looked great! Thats 6 down, 9,994 to go. We then enlarged
the HS-411 mounting holes to #12 with the rear spar and stiffner.
Next we took the skins off and drilled the 3 remaining holes
on each side of HS-710 and HS-714 to both HS-704's. The skeleton
was disassembled and we began the all so fun task of deburring
all the parts. What a LONG process. Each hole needs to be
deburred, both sides, then the edges must be deburred and
run across the 3M wheel. Next task is to dimple all the ribs
