Section: 30
Hours: 5

I decided to invest some time in building a rotiserie for the fuselage so I can rotate it to make it more convenient to work on the hard to reach areas. It will also make it much easier to paint later on. I purchased the 750# engine stand from Harbor Freight and then built an adapter for the firewall out of wood. Works great! Here's a thread from Van's Airforce about it:

I repurposed the lumber from the fuselage shipping crate- I knew it was going to be useful for something.

The stand is high enough to I can tip the fuselage on it's side without running the carry through spar stubs into the floor. It should be much easier to get to those rivets on the bottom now.
