068 is now where it will be assembled with 090. We call this end of the museum "Skunk Works".

Until Andy gets done with 906-127, the assembly on both 904's will have to wait.

But, in the meantime, Jack and I are busy, busy, busy sanding, sanding and sanding on the tails.

To make a 904 tail nice, it takes about a week of filling and sanding the pinholes. We use polyester filler for this final preparation. I will prime both tails the final primer tomorrow morning. Next week, while Jack is preparing the doors for the texture on the inside, I will be painting both tails in their final silver.
