Drilled VS skin

2 hours
final-drilled the VS skin and took it apart for deburring/dimpling. Then it’s time to prime. Really need to get it together with the whole air line thing so I’m shooting dry, clean air. I have a special hose for paint, a 4-way regulator, and a filter. I am going to have to bite the bullet and set up air channels in the garage this weekend.
pics to follow.

VS skin on.

Clecoed the VS skin to the VS skeleton in preparation for drilling.
I already miss my .093 Burraway. Should have the VS ready for priming by the end of the week.
Here before you is the VS, clecoed together:

finished drilling and assembling VS skeleton. Now on to the skin, then we’re in primer hell.
