We had a cool weekend here in Cincinnati for a change. We got the wings back off and installed brushes on the hangar door to keep the junk, snow and rain water, and birds out. The hangar is starting to be pretty livable, I still want to add some of those snap-together flooring squares and some more light, but it’s getting there. We would’ve put up the paint booth, but I’m still fighting a little bit of an oily nose, so we’re cleaning it and slapping some icing over it. Once the icing sticks reliably, I’ll be confident that we’re ready to paint it. Finally, I got my Carling Contura II switches in, and figured out how to wire them up to get the lights and functions the way I want. Basically I’ve got the new electric heater (2) and defogger that need to have 2 position switches (off-fan-heat for the defogger, and off-low-high for the heaters). My buddy Andy is using these switches, but I mainly got them because they were the first on-off-off switches that digikey had that were rated for 20 amps.
