Wing Bolt Nuts are Nuts
Today I went out to the airport and got a bunch of things done. I brought out almost all of my tools and got everything squared away, then went to work on getting the nuts on the lower wing bolts. Let's just say that it sucks. It sucks really bad. It's one of the worst parts of building a tri-gear'd side by side RV. It's a rite of passage I guess and it'll get one. I'm going to modify a 11/16 wrench tonight so I can turn the bottom nuts. I have no idea in the world how I'm going to torque them. What does this photo have to do with wing bolts? I have no idea...but it's cool!
And another goofy shot. BTW: It's much nicer working in this big hangar with all sorts of room to move around!!!
