Andy Werback's Legacy Project : Bodywork never ends

10 - 4 - 2005

It's been sort of monotonous the last couple of months. We did take 2+ weeks off for good behavior to visit Australia and New Zealand, but then back to bodywork. It's pretty much finished, at least for now. Everythings been sanded and gone over at least once. A thin layer of fiberglass has been put over the built-up areas (leading edge, for example) to protect it.

Then, on to the priming. It's easy enough to get it on using a roller (can't spray here), but getting it sanded down and smooth is just plain tedious.
