01-31 Front seat and Gear

Sky went out to help me work on the Cub again today. It's getting more difficult as he has hobbies/school activities to do, so his time to help is getting more valuable. He helped me finish putting in the front seat and tightening the bolts and then he put washers/castle nuts on all the gear attach fittings while I ironed down tape edges on the tail.

Now you're probably wondering just how long I'm going to spend ironing tape edges. Good question. What you probably don't know is that I was unhappy with my first effort in taping the trailing edges of the rudder and elevators, so I took off the tapes, cut new ones and put them on this week. Glenn can't paint them until the end of this week at the earliest anyway, so no big rush.
