Aircraft Ready for Painting!

The progress continues with N207FD.  Here is the latest from our project director, Dale, at MMS Aviation, as the aircraft gets ready for paint:

Just a quick update.  All the structural repairs are complete and we are doing the last few things before 207FD goes into the paint booth.  I have included a picture.

We did however just find some extreme wear on the left flap.  one of the flap roller arms has a groove worn in it more than half way through, and will need to be replaced.  Unfortunately, the flap will have to come apart for us to do that, because the rib that it is attached to is riveted to the spar, and we cannot get to the rivets any other way.  We will start work on that next week.
