All that is left to do on the wings are to install nut plates to the #9 rib for the wing tips, and applying body filler, and of course sanding. On past projects I used Super-fill, but I consulted that factory and they are using Z-Grip by Evercoat. I looked it up on YouTube and it looks pretty cool to use. I am not going to start the fill till after I get out to the hangar. It will make too much mess in the "Wife's" Basement.

Since I can't go back to work for 60 days minimum, I'm taking the opportunity to get as much done before my returning to American Airlines. It looks like not that will be on April 8th.
Adding nut plates for future fairings
Note the joggle from the tool 2 below.
OK This Joggle Tool from Avery tool is outstanding!!! It will make for a better transition, and less body filler.
Well Surgery is over. It went well. Margins clean!!! SO, I'm back to working on my project. But first I spent 2 weeks after the Surgery on the computer Spending Money! Aircraft Spruce is happy. I purchased, my ELT, EarthX Battery Box, All wire and connecters that I anticipate using. From Stein Air I purchased the tools I should need, and From Perihelion Design, Switch guards, Snapjacks (diode), and light weight battery cable. Thanks Ben Schneider for tipping me off to them!
I may have shown this before, but this push pull debar tool is awesome. I de-burred the entire lift strut bracket in 10 minutes. The only snag was that I bite into the I-Beam with it, and the I-Beam moved. I got it back in place and immediately Hysol and Riveted the bracket.
