floor out

I took the aft two floor panels out this afternoon. These two panels have extensive acid rot from PO battery boil over. Also found rot around lav. Removed the Galvenized portion that caused the skin corrosion. Last but not least started making new floor panels. Still need to clean up frame and apply the POR-15. I have also started my search for a gray water tank. I,m going to put it betwwe the crossmembers aft of the axle. The fresh water tank sets just in front of the axle. Looks like I can get around a 25 gal tank to fit there. The search continues.

update

I got the frame cleaned up and applied POR-15 last weekend. cleaned it on Sat. and painted on Sun. I no sooner got started when it started snowing. I sprayed on the POR-15. It went real well except I think I froze my trailing edge off. Got the two floorboards cut out and I recessed the area that goes over the wheelwell so the floorboard would set flat. I also found the outrigger that is fwd of the rt. wheel well broken off and bent up. Both of the wheel wells were cracked also. I am now ready to reinstall the repaired outrigger and wheel wells. I also made new U channels and all the coroded parts (except skin) that I found bad on the rear. Busy day tomorrow

Damn nice work! I didn't think you'd be going so fast. You'll have the whole thing done in time for spring camping. Envy envy envy....

Yes, you can upload more than three. After you browse and select the first two or three, upload them. Then just browse again--repeat until you get up to 8 (it's 10, had to look) uploaded. When you go to your paperclip icon to insert the images, you'll see that they are all there.

I don't know why the browsing function stops uploading if you've selected more than 3--maybe there is a total file size limit for each upload. I just deal with it by doing multiples.

The picture you are seeing is just the the plywood with several coats of gloss poly that I had left over from another project. I had tinted the poly with a light maple stain. The bottom looks just as good except for the knots.

I got the U channels all down (forgot to take camera) and replaced the rear doubler that was corroded so bad. I will start replacing the rear skins with a favorable weather forcast.

interior flush panels

I've also been considering flush joining interior skins. Was thinking of using Hysol to bond a backing strip on one panel and then flush rivets on the joining panel- fewer rivets. Or possibly nutplates(K-1000) with a finish washer and oval head screw in area's where I might desire an inspection plate or access to elect- etc. Nice Avitar- pretty cool flyin with the doors open.

I was also thinking nutplates, but the dimpled style, and then dimpling the skin, but I haven't made up my mind yet. It would be alot of nutplates.. We fly with the back open alot, generally with satilite proof of concept instruments or in this case it was a prototype hurricane bouy that we launched into a lake in Oklahoma.

Well the weather has improved enough for me to start re-skinning part the Globetrotter. I removed the aft lower skin this morning and will take to work tomorrow to fab a new one.
