It looks like the camera focused on the wing and not the wiring that is the focus of what I was doing.  I was wiring up the strobe, taillight and trim motor.

All the tail wiring comes to a junction under the vertical stabilizer.


With borrowed scales, we begin the process of weighing the airplane.

These scales have nice little ramps that make it easier to roll the airplane up onto the scales, but I found that I still couldn't do it by myself.















































All of the parts and pieces are loaded onto the airplane approximately where they will go to get the balance right.

When the airplane is in place on the scales, we read the scales and apply the multiplier and add up the numbers.

This (no surprise) turns out to be a heavy airplane at 1200 pounds.
