Brief Description:  Shop setup for wing #2 primer

One of the biggest frustrations i experienced when priming the first wing was propping it up in a stable position. In fact on 2 occasions I broke the tips off the winglet because my foam/lumber jig was pathetic and the evidence of impatience. Interestingly enough, more often then not, being impatient, almost ALWAYS means more work in the end and is therefore counter productive. Taking my time on the other hand, has always provided excellent results. SO, this time I decided a trip to the Home Depot would rid of this issue. And so I built a jig out of conduit and pipe fittings that will solve this issue and may be good enough to be used if I decide to paint the airplane as well.
I taped up a much thinner, .7mil plastic this time, all over the garage which should stay in place better than the heavy 4 mil stuff I used before. If the HVLP starts blowing it around, I'll grab some 2x4's to hold down the base of the plastic.
This week = Primer. :)
