Cub Work Sessions #95 & 96

Wednesday, July 26th. A lot of good progress was made during these two work sessions. Adjustments to the trim indicator system were finalized. The side stringers were fitted but not permanently attached. Using the old boot cowl as a model, new holes were located and cut in the firewall. A lot of attention was given to the cabin area. The rear floorboard was installed and the brake master cylinders bolted in place. The fuel tank was once again installed followed by the boot cowl. The process of fitting the new instrument panel to the boot cowl was begun. And the first batch of parts to be painted was delivered to the nearby auto body shop. The next work session will be Saturday, July 29th at 9:30. <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Saturday, July 29th. Another busy Saturday on the Cub project. The two side stringers were permanently installed and safety wired in place. Mike Hendricks spent a lot of time on the pains-taking job of fitting the new instrument panel to the new boot cowl. The result looks terrific. Wally, meanwhile, put a lot of effort into getting the front seat frame ready for painting. Somehow, when we were prepping and priming the many other parts, the seat was forgotten. The first batch of parts was also delivered to the nearby paint shop. We should see our first set of Cub Yellow parts in the next week or so. Exciting stuff! The next work session will be Wednesday, August 2nd at 9:30.
