We brought the fuselage back to the hangar today. The airport was great about letting us store it, the canard, and the cowling in the back of the FBO’s hangar to give us a little more space, and not have to worry about overspray (and about painting in our hangar generally). Jerry worked on installing the door pin receiver covers. I bought extra 10×32 helicoils (self-tapping) from McMaster to pot in flox to screw them down, so he’s been grinding them out to match the angles of the pins, and then grinding the pins down flush to the doorsill.
