Make sure the laser is level, then level the fuse side to side and front to back, then re-level and check the laser again....Is it level fore and aft....side to side, bubble levels on the fuse don't match the laser lines, which.... Margaree Night Swear Word Naaah Wall Bash Violin Whine This is Good

Greg, I believe that I'll be forced to fall back an a very technical process during this next stage. The military called it TLAR, and if memory serves, the back-up to TLAR was FUBAR. I'm already just about at the end of the  SNAFU stage, so stepping down to these final stages is inevitable.

I think I'm better to put the vertical stab  on first, center it on the fuse lines. Then I can square the horizontal stab up to the rudder, and everything else...

Fin just has to be square to all the reference lines on the fuse. Horizontal Stab has to be level side to side and have 1.5deg + incidence in it, PLUS be square to the fuse.  Wall Bash

It's difficult to put into words the thrill I get from putting pinking tape on the surfaces.. Wall Bash  No way am I going to put ALL the tape in ALL the places where the original was taped.
As it is, I calculate there are 2413 notches cut into the tape that I have stuck on. Right some fun  Naaah
I did do a test spray and the tape paints nicely - apparent but not overly obvious. If it stands out too much, un-named people like Glen and Mike would look for and find the mistakes..... excited Swear Word
Mostly the tape is there to hide some of my covering seams and buggers.  Fun Bat

Got a bit sidetracked on glassing the center section of the wing.  Dusty

Realized I hadn't connected the retract lines yet so THAT had to be done. Then "How am I going to finish the inside of the gear doors" - look at photos then "OK I'll do that". So did "that". Then "Missing something" oh yeah the air line, so did "that". OK, won't be bad once they're weathered a bit...

Then remembered that John would want his box of panel tools back and I hadn't done anything there yet.... Wall Bash So took a good look at my photos and low and behold the Hurricane has huge removable panels held on with Dzuz fasteners, rather than a lot of smaller panels rivetted on...
So, tried enough to make it look like....kinda, screwt.  Margaree Night
