Thought all the deburring of parts was out of
the way and now just waiting for a couple of rain free back to back days to
prime and paint. Then I remembered there were some small tabs stored in a
plastic storage tray that will attach to the fiberglass tail cone which will
also require priming. Upon opening the storage tray discovered there was much
more – all of the parts that attach the electric trim motor and linkage onto
the tail cone. Those parts had been forgotten about because they were in the
storage tray along with the trim motor.
Discovered empennage parts for the electric trim
system that need separated on the band saw. Metal strip on the right will
become the mounting tabs for the fiberglass tail cone after cutting.

Sure glad I remembered about the tabs for the fiberglass
tail cone because had I not opened that plastic storage tray looking for them,
would have totally missed priming quite a few small parts that will be needed
in the near future.
