  • Outer Wing Repair
    • Work continued on repairing the outer wing.
    • I received on quote (out of 4 inquires made) for Dustless Blasting to remove soot and paint. Ron Maddox from Ugly Blasters http://www.uglyblaster.com/contact.html    replied by saying “I believe we could do this but will not know for certain until we blast.   My hourly rates is $150 with a 3 hour minimum.  If you told me to stop after an hour I would still need $450” I explained what we wanted done and sent him pictures of the wing section.  If we want him to come out, we just need to call him a set a date.
