Date: 2/2/2010
Task: Leveled wing jig and fit skins

Made a run to Aircraft Home Depot today to purchase some 4x4's and lead screws for the center spar support. I strung a piece of fishing line along the spanwise length of the spar and adjusted the nuts on the leadscrew to get any sag out. I then spent considerable time leveling the whole ficture before putting the skins on.

I then clecod on the W-702 inboard top skin (with the W-727 wing walk doubler underneith) and the W-703 outboard top skin to the left skeleton. All holes were match dilled #40.

Repeated for the left wing.

Last I clecod on the W-704 inboard bottom skin and W-705 outboard bottom skin to the right wing and match drilled.
