B-17 Restoration Continues

Spent a little time at the Mighty Eighth Air Force Museum this morning doing some planning for upcoming activities in the radio compartment of our B-17.  Also got a chance to spend some time with my friend Jeff who has been working on getting the landing lights operational.  Jeff and team have done a great job on the electrical system and have great plans to make alot of the moving parts, well move.  Todays efforts were centered around re-doing some wiring and installing some relays to light the landing lights.  Here's a few pictures.
Looking forward in the bomb bay.  Just installed a new relay in the terminal panel.
