Wrap-up as far as sealing up the heat exchanger . . .
I spent about 45 min pulling the peel ply from both the aft end layups of the heat exchanger and side reinforcement ply of BID layups on the upper/inlet duct.
And on cleaning up the peel ply strings and the edges of each layup on both sets of layups.
The heat exchanger needs a good sanding to smooth out all these mini-layups, but beyond that I’m done with the mechanical resealing of the heat exchanger. Tomorrow I’ll jump back in to get a lot more work done. In fact, I need this week to be a very productive one to get all these ancillary (read: non-airframe) components completed and off the to-do list.
