This weekend’s progress on the S6

Just thought I’d post a quick update on where I’m at with the Coyote.  I started painting on Friday.  I painted the wing struts, wing tip fairings, baggage compartment door, and propeller spinner.  It didn’t go as bad as I thought it would.  I did get a few runs, and a friend stepped on one of the parts, but other than that it went great.

I spent Saturday and part of Sunday riveting on the windshield and skylight.  I also got to fly to Los Banos with some friends to have lunch.  This was a GREAT weekend!  Here are a few pictures of my progress.
