My bud Scott Black invited me to go to an EAA meeting where he was presenting two lecture's
" THE JOYS of FIBERGLASS" and "EPOXY RESIN-THE LONELY MAN'S FRIEND".
I told him it was my birthday and wifey had a special dinner lined up. Now I'm riddled with guilt because I actually disappeared into my shop and started covering the wing
. Yes indeed, I'm riddled with guilt.

As winter doth approach the painting season is finished-unless you use some imagination or steal ideas from others. Behold the indoor painting booth. Take one unheated garage and build a child like fort of poly and heat it with electric radiators.Thanks to the Stewart Systems Waterborn technology there was no risk of blowing up the garage while spray painting.

I had been dreading fitting the wings on the fuselage for weeks. I would rather have had to dress a bipolar gorilla in a tuxedo.Getting the wing out of the basement like was stuffing the tuxedo clad gorilla into a smart car without ruining the press.
Surprisingly the wing support pins went on slick . Minor tapping with a calibrated hammer . landing wires tomorrow.
