12th and 13th week of restoration

During the 12th and 13th week of restoration several aspects of the airplane have been met.

The wheels have been painted and new tires sporting white walls have been mounted.

The end caps of the upper and lower wing have been replaced and extra braces have been added to support the wings.

The seat has been completely rebuilt and the restored jenny wings have been shellacked for future fabric application.
