Leading Edge Varnish

Posted on Updated on

After the leading edge stringer was contoured to match the nose ribs I pre-fit the plywood sheeting. While the plywood was installed I marked the centerline of the stringer on each end and from the inside I attempted to mark the stringer and rib locations.

Then the plywood was removed and lines connected and added so I know where the glue areas are so I can avoid putting varnish there. Two coats of varnish were applied to all non glue areas.


The spar, ribs and stringer were varnished except where glue will be applied.



At least two coats need applied, once dry it will be time to glue the plywood on the leading edge.
