Billy, sorry for the delay. The red steel jig is a Fry Jig. I posted a thread about the jig itself here.

They were made for the -3, -4 and -6. Mine is nominally for an RV-4.

There are a number of posts on my RV-3B blog here on VAF starting with post #235 that show how I'm using the jig.

I expect to be done with it in a year or so, more or less, and then I'll be ready to pass it along.

Arlie, sorry for the interruption.

Dave

Default Update

It’s been a while since I posted on this thread. All of my Photobucket pictures are no longer available. I’m proud to say that the plane is ready to fly and has passed it’s airworthiness inspection. The next chapter is to get the first flight done and complete phase 1. The exterior will need paint but the interior is done except for the stick boots and covers which are at Oregon Aero. Here are a few pictures of the plane and interior. We are really happy with the final results.

Nice looking airplane, Arlie!

And the cockpit looks like a lot of thought went into it, too.

Yeah, that?s an iPod that my buddy Justin integrated into the audio panel. He is really good at figuring stuff like that out and make it work flawlessly. He has the data cable and power wired direct into the planes electrical supply. The USB is located in the center tunnel for easy access.

That is an awesome little bit of detail that looks great. Beautiful Plane overall. Have always wanted a fastback.

Nice job Arlie! Is the Dynon the 7in or 10? Also, curious about the additional nav display below the Dynon. I thought there was a nav display on the Dynon.

It?s the small Dynon due to real estate. We have a Garmin 660 for backup. Both can run the autopilot.

ACAM37,
You really detailed the cockpit switches well and nice job making it IFR capable.

From an old one to the "newest" -4 way to go.

Happy Landings,
Daddyman
