Default On the sunny side of the street

Tank issues notwithstanding, the bird did clearly enjoy being let out in the full sun for the first time. Yes, I have a new left aileron built and waiting to be hung.

Sooo... This is bare naked aluminum, with some discrete vinyl remaining on the canopy and other places of active work. Does this mean she's sunbathing?
