Received the hardware, Glued the spar root ply doublers

Today I received all the rest of the hardware from Raven Aircaft. This included the aileron hinges, bellcranks, Idler, spar straps, drag wire lugs, aileron drive arms, and aileron hinge brackets. I also had Raven powder coat them in white, which turned out really nice I highly recommend doing this.

I then set off to glue the spar ply doublers at both wing roots.  I wanted to apply equal pressure so I coated them with T-88 and used plastic wrap to keep my 2X4 from sticking and then I used two clamps per root.

Time spent Today 2 hours
Total Time Spent 57 hours
