Bringing the wings down to remove the fabric.

Sky and I bringing the wings down to strip the fabric this morning. We're at the point where we need to fit the new fuel tank and associated plumbing so it's time to do the wings. The outside is terribly stained by bird-droppings and discolored from the sun. We didn't know how the inside would look unless we took the fabric off. The fabric is 18 years old, so it was about time to do it anyway.

Engine news: Glenn's friend Roger Teagarden has a core A65 sitting in his basement and has graciously allowed us to send the cylinders in to have them checked out before we decide it we want to purchase it. No logbooks, so it's only value is as a core. But we'll have a spare crank and cam too.
