I'm jealous of all the space you have. I'm building out of single car garage.
The skirt is now apparently a two-piece item. It looks like it will take a LOT of fabrication and fiddling. I'll keep you posted.

You can never have enough space. The photo of the finish kit inventory is in the garage section of the building;the main shop is 25x25, but the two spaces are only connected with two narrow interior doors. Big pieces have to transfer outside via the garage doors. Before I started building, I did some matching scale drawings of both the shop and the airplane and played with cutouts to make sure I would be able to fit the aircraft with the wings inserted for setting the incidence. Done some double-checking, and it is possible... but it's going to be really tight in all directions. Same with the painting in my collapsible interior booth; the fuselage is gonna be a bear.
