Default Side Intake

So the side air intake? . Installed SO LONG ago.. and maybe not needed...a tiny mistake.? I made so many... RV8?s have been known to be a bit chilly.. and drafty.. So I wanted to have the option for lots and lots of cold/warm/hot air.. So I have dual heater muffles with mixers ..on the exhaust pipes.. That side intakes feed the port side air system .

Still moving the ball down the field. I'm ready to have the Fastback canopy finished!!!

Ready for epoxy skim then primer. It's cold and rainy today but tomorrow looks good.


Started putting the gear together.


These lines were made for Matco brakes so they'll need to be shortened about 1 inch.


Instrument panel is getting cut this week by Up North Aviation.

Thank you. On the Pictures the clear coat is still missing so it will look even more intensive afterwards. The Blue is called San Marino Blue from BMW (code B51) a really beautiful intensive blue! In the sun it shines crazy and in the dark/ shadow its quite dark. The black is also slightly metallic..
I am so happy to see it now in colours

Yves, Great looking paint job! Multi colour with lots of curves - the taping and masking alone has got to be a labour of love. Looking forward to seeing the finished product.
