    Subscribed to see the build progress :thumbup:.
    Was following Ironman the whole way from the beginning and was always interesting to come see what the latest progress was.

    Trying to be sooooo super quiet with the impact driver. It's getting late. Perhaps tomorrow I might get a chance...

    Subbed for the pure awesomeness of this build. How are you going to deal with the AMPEX VPR-80 panel?

    Not sure if it helps but found a decent image of the panel itself.

    Couple of years...


    Update:

    Grinding the ends off the stringer screws.

    Next stringers plotted out for cutting tomorrow. I have a full day on it tomorrow, so should get a fair bit done. Might even get started on polystyrene bodywork if I'm not interrupted. Not holding my breath though.

    I want the screws to go all the way through for maximum grip. On that bench sander, it takes about three seconds to do one end of the stringer with three screws protruding.
