Bret,

Vans battery box is made from steel - Are you not worried about all that aluminium on the front of the firewall holding a heavy battery in case of a fire ??

If there is a fire, the insulation on ALL the wires will burn up and short out before the battery drops out, in either case, I will be landing or parachuting......or high diving into a lake! good point tho :=)

Looks like mine did about a year ago. I will soon be on landing gear with an O360-A4M attached to the front and finishing kit arriving in mid-Feb. My [aggressive] goal is to fly this summer. Waiting for stars to align

Good progress Larry. We are close in the build cycle, I'm about to start the wing joining process.

Wow! That's a nice option to be able to just pick up the phone and call the Van's hot line!!
