Chapter 25 – Left wing prep for micro

So today, all total, I did about 5 hours worth of sanding.

First off I sanded the bottom of the left wing, then cleaned and prepped it for “micro” (West 410/micro) finishing. That all took a bit over 3 hours.

After spending nearly 2 hours (re)sanding the latest bottom/forward fuselage and nose “micro” finish refill, I then removed the tape around the edges of the landing brake and razor knifed the edge seams again.

I then lowered (obviously “raised” as inverted) the landing brake and tested out the edge clearance with the micro fill by opening and closing it a few times.

I didn’t want to start the micro fill on the left wing since I knew it was going to take a minimum of 3 hours, and it was already later in the evening, so I plan on hitting that tomorrow.
