Visitor Day

I hadn’t planned to have so many visitors today, but it sure was nice! I started out early in the morning with the rest of the remaining fuselage cementing. Skip stopped by in his Kitfox and visited for a little while. I had sent a message out to our EAA chapter members to invite folks over who wanted to learn more about covering. Jack took me up on the offer and I put him to work on one of the landing gear legs.

I worked on the left landing gear leg while Jack worked on the right, and it didn’t take long to finish them both. We shrank the covering on those legs, and Jack started working on the first coat of Polybrush while I shrank the fuselage.

Then fellow Bearhawk builder Hari stopped by from out of town for a visit. Hari was able to take some pictures of our
progress and give us an update on his. Other visitors that afternoon included Jim, Danny, Paige, and Bradley.

The weather was perfect, which might have been part of why so many folks came by. I was able to finish the shrinking on the fuselage, which is looking very nice.
