Yesterday’s efforts to strip the tailwheel fork were not fruitful. The abrasive that I was using was too fine and the coating was too tough. Today I was able to remove it with the die grinder and a scotchbrite wheel. I had previously painted the rudder pedal assembly, and while it turned out quite nicely, there was just an engineering change that suggested additional welding. I did that welding today, then prepped the welded portions for paint. In this round of priming I sprayed the other side of yesterday’s parts, plus the tailwheel fork, and the rewelded rudder pedals.
