Date: 9/14/2009
Task: Prepped he remaining rudder parts for priming. Primed all rudder parts.

Here is the result of last nights work. The primer was very smooth. I think I got my HPLV gun figured out!

The rest of the rudder parts ready to be degreased and etched.

Right skin etched and ready to prime.

The left skin ready for priming.

All the parts cleaned and etched.

The skins after priming. They look great!

Effective use of paper towels and painters tape to mask off the outside of the counterbalance skin.
