Task: Finished right landing light lens

This morning I finished the right landing light lens. I first made a rough cut with the band saw, affixed the retainer strips to the lens and marked the outter edge.

Next I covered the outside of the lens with tape so the band saw table wouldn't scratch it.

Then I cut it to final size and sanded the edges.

Next came the leading edges. Now that the landing lights are finished (but not yet installed), we can rivet the leading edges to the main spar. I removed them one last time, cleaned up the edges and wiped the spar down.

On goes the right leading edge!

Then the left!

No more blue film!!
