  1. Decided to start participating in Canard living. Been working for months in seclusion. Kent's progress reports have motivated me to try to share more (despite my hardcore introversion). So, tonight I got a couple hours in, and in typical me fashion, I jumped around as stuff caught my eye (look, shiny!). I started the evening with the intent of tidying up the hangar (I've let things go a bit with some partially completed tasks causing a few tool piles to pop up outside the toolbox) and about 10 minutes into tidying I ended up getting too close to the prop while holding a sanding block and decided to finish sanding to prepare to repaint (prop has a repair spot from a cowl screw that was a little bit proud) and remove the paint that was applied to the tips. It's a Hertzler Silver Bullet, and I intend to repaint with White Epoxy Appliance paint. Anyone have any tips as to what the correct method is to sand something with no flat surface? Ok to hand sand w/o a block? Pics attached. When I finished bit of sanding I returned to tidying, and finding the Fein tool decided to work on trimming the flange in the left side of the fuselage. I started by making a template from paperboard of the right side flange so I could get the sides to match. I traced the outline from the template to the flange, and removed the plastic and duct tape used to create a gap (about 1/8") between the fuselage and flange. I cut a piece of .032" steel sheet to slide between the fuselage and flange while trimming so as to not accidentally cut too deep and cut into the fuselage side. I got the rough cut done and just need to sand to final shape. Pics attached. --Craig
