Rainy Day Work

Post by Paul Moggach » Thu Oct 24, 2019 10:11 pm

Ever wonder what happens on a rainy day at York or how paint is can lose its grip on metal or what purple scotch scrubbing pads do? Even if you aren't interested in the answers to these burning questions help would be appreciated on Sunday as work continues with paint stripping on YSY in the workshop. The new paint stripper is much easier to work with than previous products but old clothes are a must as this is a dirty job. We have lots of rubber gloves, scrapers, etc.

Rainy day but the work shop will be heated while stripping paint off the 2-33 wing. Come out and help if you can, old clothes as it is messy work!

Made good progress today thanks to Paul Moggach and Paul Chalifour. Will continue next Sat and Sunday and hope to just about finish the stripping of the second wing. We had heat so it was good working in the Shop.

So, more rainy/snowy/cold day work this weekend (Nov 9/10). We are down to one wing side left. Work is planned around the hangar packing and on Sunday, which should finish off the paint stripping.
