Chapter 25 – Fuselage finish prep

Today was all about prepping the forward lower fuselage and nose for micro finish.  I spent well over 3 hours sanding these areas in prep for micro-finishing.

Then, after taping up the outer edge, I re-installed the landing brake onto the bottom of the fuselage.

Another shot of the taped up landing brake.

My battery was quite low from having previously operated the landing brake and from running the gear up and down to dial in the nose gear doors, so I pulled it and put it on the charger overnight.  Tomorrow I’ll close the landing brake and have it in position to create a micro edge and transition around it.

My plan tomorrow is to get the micro finish complete on all the areas I prepped today.
