Default Congrats!

Looks great Larry!

Just framed up my wing stand last weekend...hearing about those who have made it through to completed parts helps keep me going.

Thanks Chris
KPTR (keep pounding those rivets). I can't take credit but it's a great acronym.
The wings and tanks will try your patience but keep at it. I found friends really help. They keep you occupied and also help with all that deburring!

She'll probably deny it if you ask, but my wife gets mad if I don't let her do the hole deburring! Probably because she hasn't yet met the wings....

Don't tell her there are about 5,000 holes in the wing skins. That's 10,000 deburs!
