Today primed the canard. We spent most of last weekend getting the EIS wiring up to snuff, but it’s not very photogenic. This week was sand and fill (and grinding off some canard-tip layups I did a *long* time ago before I knew better-they were as thick as battleship armor). So, today was the day, after a few quick fill-sand-fill-sand cycles with the body filler “Icing” (thanksĀ Andy!- that stuff cures in 30 minutes!), we were ready to shoot. It looks good, some pinholes will get some more icing, but we’re a few nights of sanding, repriming, and sanding from hitting it with color. Maybe next weekend we’ll be ready to swap these two for the pilot side wing?
