Left top skins primed

Took advantage of the the nice calm sunny afternoon and scuffed, washed, and primed the left top skins.

Here they are baking in the sun. Bella did a good job of staying down wind while they dried. Can you imagine all the hair she could introduce into that primer?

Once the primer was dry, I hung the parts on the wing and then rechecked the assembly for square. I kinda dig that olive green color on the inside. I sure hope it’s worth all the work/weigh (though minor) in the end.
