Kip,

Did you add that stringer on the outboard edge of th window as part of the effort to seal the extra window holes?

I'm curious about shaving the double flush rivets. I assume that you only have to shave the bucked side?

The outbd stringer or vertical frame was already there. I had to shave both sides because I put a very shallow countersink on both sides. I could have used NAS1097 shear head rivets and not have to shave the outside but I did not have them in A's, so the MS20426's had to do. If I had countersunk the skin for the 426's to set flush, the countersink would have greatly increased the hole size.

I'm back at it after installing new hardwood floors in the house. I drilled and fitted up the fwd skin using .050, the fwd rt corner using .032, and the small skin in front or the door using .040. I also replaced the stringers on the small skin in front of the door. A few more holes to pick up, trim up to final size, and priming still needs to be done before I'm ready to shoot them on. I'm pushing to get this done before I have to go to Christmas Island at the end of the month.

update

I've been busy this last couple of months and am finally getting back at it. First is a couple of Archery Hunt Camp and then some before and after, fwd banana wrap pictures. I also have the new skins pictured in my last post all primed on the inside and mating surfaces. The banana wrap is also primed on the inside and mating surfaces. I was going to work on it this coming weekend but I found out today that I'm taking the C130 down to Tucson to get it washed after my trip to Christmas Island. I guess I'll just have to wait on installing all the new skins and parts that are ready to go on.

Hi, what is the purpose of using three different thickneses of aluminum? Or is that the way it was originally built?

I think you could call Kip a "scrounger." Plus that .050 is just about bullet proof. Maybe he's worried DOORGUNNER might show up from California for real...

I used the .032 for the corner skins because it is easier to form. I used the .040 for the side skins because it does not distort like the .032 when installing 5/32 solid shank rivets, and I'm using .050 because I can, and because the front and back skins are integral to the shell to frame interface. I,m using .063 for all the new stringers because I plane on using them for the interior component hardpoints. I also plan to attach the frames and stringers together for a more unified shell strusture. I'm aslo am worried I might have to hide bhind the front skin if Doorgunner does comes to Colorado

Come on, admit it, you're going to pressurize it for camping on Vail pass...while you play jet engine sound effects loudly.

Hi, you can have Mount Evans. If I remember correctly, it was a very long narrow up hill drive with very steep slopes on the sides of the road without guard rails. Barely enough room for two cars to pass and the higher up you go the narrower the road gets. I was very nervous, thinking like a mechanic, if I popped a tire or lost my brakes we would go off the side with no stopping until we hit bottom. [16,000 feet] And it would be weeks before someone would find our bodies. This is one of those things where I can say we done it once and will never do it again. The view from the top and the mountain goats wandering around up there was great, but never again.

Well I spent about 5 hours today trying to get the Rt. front corner ready to shoot on. I got the reworked banana wrap all drilled up and just need to cut the lower corner skin off to ED of the lower holes. I also got the lower portion of the front skin all drilled up. I still need to fabricate the banana wrap for the skin in front of the door, I'll try to get that done this week. I also installed the repaired step, it sure is nice having it back in place. Still need to put the anti-skid on it to make it a bit less slippery.
