Cub Work Session #58

Today we rented a truck and retrieved our fuselage from Tom Young's shop in Hagerstown. Tom clearly did a wonderful job replacing the two lower longerons along with lots of fittings and brackets at the tail post. He also made some repairs near the cabin including the installation of a new window channel. Tom is certainly a highly skilled craftsman. Once we got back to Frederick, we put the fuselage in the Chapter house and went back to work on the wing. Epoxy primer was applied to the three steel aileron hinge brackets, which were the only steel parts in the wing that had not yet been primed. Another section of the wing leading edge skins was then strapped into place. Drilling and attaching the first two skins will happen on Saturday, February 11th at 9:30. We will also soon be exploring next steps with the fuselage including mounting it on some sort of stand, removing the old paint, and treating the insides of the tubing with oil.
