Smoke oil and fuselage miscellaneous

One of my friends from EAA9 e-mailed me that he saw me working on the smoke oil line and wondered if I wanted his leftover smoke oil. Heck yeah! Doesn't everyone need a 55 gallon drum of smoke oil in their garage? ;-)

There's actually only about 20 gallons left, but I figured I'd take this photo mostly for my own future reference when I need to buy another drum.

Same here.

The rivet under the fitting nearst the camera was going to interfere with the B nut, so I drilled it out, countersunk the back side plate, and squeezed in a double-flush rivet.

I also fired up the heater and infra-red heater and primed a few parts.
