Week 10

This week the rains have come back so the painting was put on hold.  However several volunteers showed  up and many thing were worked on.
There was a crew that rebuilt the supports and gussets for the landing gear.  Over 90 years of use the wood has fatiqued and become crushed from the load.  We had redo the supports connected to the lower wing.
Another group worked on the seat rebuild.  There was also metal parts that needed sand blasting and cleaning on the wire wheel.
Finally the group working on the brass straps for the keel were getting closer to completion.
Fitting the seat and replacing wood on the end caps.

Sand blasting and working on the keel.
