That B-17 is based in Mesa near where I live.  I've seen it in action in the seventies as a slurry bomber and I helped out in the early restoration process when I was in Civil Air Patrol.  (cleaning and scrubbing)  Great Pics!!!

Picked up my engine block, crank, pistons/rods and heads.  Stripped old blue paint of my oil pan.  Installed my taillights.  Rebuilt my heater box.   :faint:

Friday: Taking the rods back to the machine shop to get new bolts installed and get them resized (again).  Remove corrosion from the now bare metal on the oil pan.  Strip paint from other exterior engine parts.  Order parts.

Saturday: Mock up the engine and paint it.  Other miscellaneous restoration work.

Sunday and Monday: Ummm...
