Vans Aircraft RV-12 Airplane Build: Final Assembly (part 3)

Reference: Page 40-09; 2.0 hours

The wing painting on the Van's RV-12 aircraft is complete! I promise to post painting detail! But today I am installing the Wing tip fairings for the navigation lights. These had been pre-fitted in an early work session and now just need to be installed.

Builder's note: Blue line mask and black tape were used to keep the fuel tank sealant from making a mess (as if that were really possible!)

Builder's note: The tape is removed before the sealant sets up. Then I filled the rivet heads with Superfill epoxy. Later they will be touched up with matching paint.

This completes the installation of the nav light faring on the RV-12 wings.
