Andy Werback's Legacy Project : Ailerons and Fuel Drain fairings

12 - 30 - 2004

I'm not quite ready to start doing wholesale micro and sanding on the tail. I'm more into the mechanical stuff, so this month is fitting the ailerons, adding the counterweights, checking free movement. The fuel drain fairings are installed and faired in with micro. Lots of phone calls to Lancair support. They're very patient and helpful.

Sand and check, sand and check, eventually it will move freely

The drain fairings are installed one at a time, fit, flox, micro, sand, no clecoes here
