Even though the outside temperatures were below 50, a batch of Akzo primer was mixed and sprayed onto the remaining bulkhead, longerons and the last of the miscellaneous parts. Mike’s heater has been keeping the temperatures in the shop plenty warm for the proper curing of the Akzo primer so it will dry without issues.
The F1207B bulkhead and accompanying miscellaneous primed parts hanging to dry in the warmth created by Mike’s propane heater.
Both longerons primed and hung from bungee cords to dry in the warm shop.
Fortunately, there were not enough flammable vapors given off by the primed parts to blow the shop off the foundation from having the propane heater on. Now that the fuselage parts prep and priming/painting is complete, the long overdue assembly of the fuselage can begin in earnest … time to take all the small parts and create one big part. Perfect timing because the temperatures are dropping rapidly here and there is even a forecast for the possibility of a little snow tonight and tomorrow.
