Thanks! Moving it was tricky but doable.


And here it is -- I have some organizing and planning to do!



Can't wait!

Default Canopy & Windshield Done

Finally. Canopy, skirt, windshield and trim all done. Pretty pleased with the results.
Big shout out goes to Dan Horton for the awesome threads on fiberglass and cutting & buffing. Also to my mentor, Dave for teaching me fiberglass.
I tried to document the processes to my blog for others.

Default More fun stuff added!

Took advantage of the sub 100 degree temps in Phoenix this weekend. Yesterday fellow builder/pilot Tom Velvick helped me reinstall and time my magnetos. Thanks again Tom! FWF (firewall forward) smoke system oil lines fabricated and temporarily installed today! That completes mock up of all the FWF systems! I won't torque anything until the very end when I am certain that nothing needs to come off or on. Pictures start from front right side (cylinder #1) around the back to the front left side (cylinder #2).
