"Cloudster" Construction Project Session #68
Speed 400 Cloudster
As was stated earlier, the oval shaped
bulkheads shown below are an extension of the oval shape of the bottom
forward planking. The covering will stretch tight in a straight line across
each stringer and cause the edges of the oval bulkheads to stick out under
the covering. The oval bulkheads need to be sanded down to form either a
straight line between stringers or recessed concave between stringers so as
not to touch the covering material at all.
I decided in favor of the recess concave approach, so I took this task on
the first thing this morning. It took me took approximately two hours to
carefully trim and sand concave recesses on all 32 of the bulkhead edges
between the stringers as shown below......................Tandy
