It's been a while since we've posted on this thread, but here's one for RV-8 fans. This one comes from Chris Ives in CA. Beautiful paint scheme, and our Sportsman seats in leather. Thanks Chris!

Here is the latest addition to our customer gallery. It's from Jim Ellis in Texas. Photos by none other than Doug Reeves. It's a great looking combination of paint scheme and interior. Nice job Jim, and thanks for the pictures.

We still do lots of RV-6s even though Vans hasn't sold the kits for years. Here is a very nice one from Jim Thomson in Washington. Thanks Jim!

These all look great. Luke I did have a question, which I think I know the answer to, but... Here goes.

If I was buy a portion of the interior package. Let's say the seats and carpeting with the thought that I might buy the side panels later when more money is available. Is that I reasonable idea or would the color matching not be good between the two purchases? I'm not sure if you try to match when you make the interiors or how that works in your production process.

Hi Ray,

Good question. It's actually very common for customers to order some items initially, and then add more to their interior later on. With the exception of some or our cloths, we've had all the same material colors available for the last 12 year or so, and we intend to keep them for the foreseeable future.

We stock all of our materials ourselves, and die lots are very consistent from one to the next. Of course there is always a small potential for slight variations, but for the most part it hasn't been an issue over the years.

I'm trying to get back to doing regular updates on pictures that our customers send us. These are from Greg N. in Washington State. His RV-14A looks great. Very professional. Thanks Greg!

Also, click the link below to see more detailed info about Greg's RV-14A. We've redesigned our customer galleries to make them easier to use.

The latest addition to our Customer Galleries is from Hillsboro, OR (practically local). This RV-7A was built by James Jula, and features an amazing paint job. The interior colors compliment the paint scheme very nicely. Nice Job James!
