Sunday (today) I went into work early and went at the primer with the dual
action sander and 220 grit paper. After 45 minutes, it was done. I had expected
to sand through the primer in places and to have to put on a few more coats, but
that wasn't the case - there was still primer on 99% of the surfaces. I called
it good. I then borrowed a co-worker's truck and drove the wing back up to
Tehachapi, where Deanie helped me unload it and put it in the hangar, next to
the rest of the plane.
Repairs done - three weekends of work. Tuesday, a couple of co-workers who live in Tehachapi will help me mount the wing on the plane after work, and by the weekend, when the Siebolds come to visit for the weekend in their COZY III, I'll be flying again with a new prop extension and a borrowed Gary Hertzler prop from Mike Melvill.
