Got the old soldering iron out and started removing the excess blue plastic film.

Once again I used my pop-rivet dimplers to do these dimples. Did I mention that I hate that "C" Frame dimpler? I only use that %^&* thing when the skins are so thick that the pop-rivet dimplers won't do the job. Oh well, my preference. Someone asked me yesterday when I would finish the RV. I hadn't really thought about it. Hmm... Let's see... Finish the wings, start the fuselage, then the finish kit, then the avionics, ... ARRGGGH. Nope, ain't gonna' go there. I am one with the RV Gods and happy in the moment.
Hommmmm.... zzzzzzzzzzzz
