Well, I was able to spend a short half hour in the garage tonight. Last time, I ended up working on the access panel for the stall warning vane. I figured getting that prepped, primed, and nutplated would be a nice short task completion.
Here's the doubler, dimpled (for #6 screws) and scuffed after running the edges through the scotchbrite wheel.
I finished the edges of the cover, too, and dimpled for the #6 screws. The other side of this plate is devinyled and scuffed, but I’m leaving the vinyl on this (the potentially polishable) side.
Ready for priming.
See, I told you the other side was scuffed.
While the primer was drying, I did a little edge finishing of the stall warning vane mini-rib.
Scuffed, but I still need to edge finish in all those crevices.
After the primer dried on the doubler, I set some NAS (oops) rivets with some dimpled nutplates.
I didn't tighten these down at all, just threaded them into place.
Of course, I had to cleco tonight's work back into the leading edge.
