Brief Description:  Wings Going On - Part 1

Not sure where today went but most of it was spent getting the wings installed on the fuselage. While the whole thing actually went pretty well, there were 2 -7 bolts on the left and two -7 bolts on the right that were particularly challenging and took way too long to finally get treated all the way through. But, the wings are completely bolted on now!! Wing tips went back on and all of the wiring is connected as well as the pitot line and passenger fresh air hose. Double checked all of the brake lines this morning and still no leaks so that is a reason to celebrate!

Tomorrow the ailerons and flaps go back on and probably the wheel pants and gear cuffs along with the spinner. Maybe even an engine start...

Closer all the time...
