My Great Lakes 2T-1A-2 Rebuild Diary 2007.

19-September-2007. Started covering the control surfaces. David came over to give me a lesson on fabric covering - he is building a Great Lakes. His instruction has really made a difference, it's okay reading a manual or viewing a video. But having David keeping an eye on what I was doing and offering advise as I went along has made all the difference. He has saved me days, if not weeks or months of progress having set me off on the correct path from the start. Davids inspector is the same as mine so he knows what he is looking for and will be checking.

I have also created a HELP ME page on this site for areas/parts etc that I don't know what fits. Please have a look especially if you have a Great Lakes 2T-1A-2.
Here is this evenings progress:

I had a pile of control surfaces ready for Davids visit. He inspected them and made a few suggestions regarding the anti-chafe tape.
Dave making a few changes to the way I had fitted the anti-chafe tape.
Jo came in to see what we were doing and took some pictures. David and I are focused on the job.
