Section: ruder, elevator, horizontal stabilizer
Hours: 8

Lots of sanding today. I spent most of the day knocking down the skin coat on the rudder and horizontal stabilizer. I quit sanding early enough that I had time to apply a coat of sanding primer before quitting time. I'm not sure what paint system I will use for finishing the airplane, so I just applied a generic sanding sealer I purchased at the local auto parts shop. The goal is to seal the parts and protect them from UV until I can get the airplane to the paint shop. If the paint shop needs a different primer, this can be easily sanded off and a different one applied later.

Here's the freshly primed parts.
