Well, we went to the Ft. Worth Airshow last weekend so no progress. Got back on the project Sunday Oct. 19th. After everyone did their chores it was time for the fabric to come off and come off it did.

Upon reviewing the logbooks it appears that the fabric on the fuselage is the original cotton. The tail had been recovered with Polyfiber in 2004. Pretty rare to find cotton installed in 1956 and to see how the factory did it. After removing the fabric the structural damage was revealed.

Finished just in time for dinner and a relaxing evening before another week of work, school, soccer, band and volleyball.
