One of the nutplates in the F-766A flap motor channel contains the 12,000th rivet of the project...

Letting a little long overdue sun shine on the project. It's 45 degrees here in southeast Michigan, but with the overcast melted away and the wind near calm, it was time to open the hangar door and enjoy a cool one (the criteria is that the day is warmer than the beer )


Not a lot of progress lately on the -7. My excuse (and it IS just an excuse), is that I've been spending a lot mental energy on the fact that my Cessna 170B is almost ready to return home. Some may remember that in the summer of 2014 '98C was savagely attcked by a renegade hand-propped Cherokee.


A slightly generous insurance settlement got the lions share of the repairs done, and kicking in some coin of my own got her a few upgrades, cosmetic repairs, and new paint and interior. 32 months later she's within a week or two of coming home. All she needs are a few touchups, a static system check, and a weight and balanceYIPPE!
