Default Not pretty but useful

This became my first welding project-- to make a towbar for the 10. Since I'm at the point of needing to move it around I had to wrap it up. Learning a lot about welding now but have a useful device to put to work. I've installed the steel helicoil and extended the bolt with a spacer to extend about 1/4 outside the pant. The right side of the bar slides in or out and locks to the in position. The handle extends another 2 feet if needed. Ok back to the project.

Default Looking sharp!

That's got to be really encouraging to reach that stage, Todd. Glad to see it happening; looking forward to the day on mine (and remembering my 6A at that exact stage 19 years ago).

It's PPG polyurethane. These pics are from my painter who has been feeding me in-progress reports

Default Update #2

So with the white base on, the stripes and N-number shadowing has been applied. After that's all dried, the color for the cabin, top cowl, and wing/emp flashes will get sprayed.
