Started today by working on the brake system. About as far as I got was mounting the reservoirs to the master cylinders. I figured out that I didn’t have the right tubing to make the transition from the master cylinder to the fuselage lines. I had nylaflow, and need nylaseal. It seems that I needContinue reading “Inventory Management fail”

Garaggio On Location: Warner Robbins, GA
I had so much fun doing the composite finishing on the Garaggio Ez…. sand, fill, sand, fill, sand, repeat… that I was kinda missing it. So much so in fact, I decided I needed to find some more sanding and filling to do. So I’m helping with this process on a buddy’s airplane. Oh, andContinue reading “Garaggio On Location: Warner Robbins, GA”
Wake Up Call
Jon literally woke me up today to get my butt out to the Garaggio. “I’m here,” was the text I was awoken by. Probably a good thing or I wouldn’t have gotten any work done on the EZ. We started by more sanding the bottom of the wings. We also did some spot filling ofContinue reading “Wake Up Call”
Third Coat’s The Charm?
Greg must have read my post about momentum last night and decided that he was going to attempt to pre-accelerate the project so that crew scheduling can’t slow it down as much. At any rate he came over in the morning and worked with me until it was time to get ready to leave toContinue reading “Third Coat’s The Charm?”
Sanding, Sanding, oh and more Sanding! And a scale.
You guessed it, my day consisted mostly of sanding. I started by trimming yesterdays winglet and rudder spar layups, then sanded the flanges flush with the surfaces. I am quite happy with how the layups turned out. I have a few more little things I need to do to the rudder/winglet spars, but shouldn’t takeContinue reading “Sanding, Sanding, oh and more Sanding!

Operation Prime: Part 5
I have no clue what happened, but I had five things on my list to work on today, and I worked on all five. I finished four of them. Maybe I worked more efficiently, maybe I had less distractions, maybe I was more realistic with planning my day, or maybe all of the above. ButContinue reading “Operation Prime: Part 5”
Operation Prime: Part 3
Had a lot of “other things” to do today, so that cut into Garaggio time. Short post tonight, as there isn’t much detail to give. I am still working towards being able to get primer on the rest of the exterior of the airplane. To that end, I contour sanded the ailerons and the places on theContinue reading “Operation Prime: Part 3”
Operation Prime, Part Duce
Its been a couple days since the last post, and I did get to work on the airplane for a short while sanding three days ago. There was not much to show for it so forgive me for not putting up a blog post and another picture of a microed surface that still needs work.Continue reading “Operation Prime, Part Duce”
Yesterday I finished with simulator training for work and completed my checkride. I am now type rated on the Airbus 320. More importantly, being done with the sim means I get some time at home, and thus time in the Garaggio. Both Jon and Greg were able to come by and help today. It was 70Continue reading “Operation Prime”
I decided to take the later flight back to training today so that I could get just one more thing done on the airplane. I was able to get the interior and canopy rail bottoms slathered in micro. It will get sanded out when I get home, hopefully with a new type rating.
