We finally found some time to get back on the project. Between work, friends and the trip to Eugene something had to give.

The right outboard flaperon is coming along quickly. We almost made a deadly mistake a SECOND time... drilling mounting brackets upside down. The holes for the brackets already existed in the skin and cause me to double check my measurements and positions.

My guess is that we have maybe two hours more work on the piece. The left outboard flaperon should take less time, and the inboards seem to be a similar process.

If I can get part of Labor day, one night during the week and one day next weekend, all four pieces should be done by Sept 17. The slats shouldn't take much time, so the wings and tanks need to be ordered soon.

Project Status:
Flaperons: 4.5 hours spent ( 1.5h, 3h )
Paint Design: 2 hours spent ( 1h, 1h )
Elevator DONE!: ~31.5 hours spent ( 3h, 1.5h, 3h, .5h, 3.5h, 2h, 4h, 1.5h, 2h, 4.5h, 1h, 6h )
Horizontal Stabilizer DONE!: ~28 hours spent, 3 pieces replaced ( 3h, 2h, 2h, 2h, .5h, 1.5h, 3.5h, 1.5h, 5, 4.5, 2h, .5h )
Rudder DONE!, minus horn : ~16 hours spent, ( ~8h, ~8h )
Total Done: ~83 hours
