Andy Werback's Legacy Project : Closing the Wings

10 - 24 - 2004

Wings come ready to be closed. All that's required is a complete sanding where the top and bottom are bonded and a (very) careful inspection. Once the the Hysol cures, you've got a wing! (well, a little finishing work is needed)

Making a good impression. Things move fast when getting ready to flox. This was done in order to wet both sides with adhesive, then flox is applied
