Thanks,
As I understand regular tint with the adhesive is not good for plexiglass, degrades it over time. What brand of cling did you use and were you happy with results?

GILA 50146369 5% Static Cling Plus Limo Black 24”x6.5’ Window Tint

I would say it is not perfect but it does stay in place and it does keep the heat and sun out but its hard to get all the air bubbles out in a scale of 1-10 i give it an 8.5

John, I'm getting my seats from Eliane, too. They weren't able to accommodate crotch strap cutouts for the Crow harnesses, but I see you sort of plowed ahead anyway as I was seriously considering doing. How did you anchor the straps for the front passengers, and do you find them a hassle to adjust if they don't move with the seat bottom frame?

Like you, I am really pleased with AeroSport's interior pieces and Rob's panel work. Assume you got a local shop to cover your center console armrest in leather? That's the direction I was told to go.

Bill,

I just bolted it stationary to the front of the on the stick side wall, the crotch strap stays static and I have no problem with that we never adjust them. I had a trim shop install my seat cover and cover the center console.

Default At last, all done except the polishing

Here are the photos of the finished paint (the last major step). The concept is a tribute to my father, both images on the fin/rudder are portraits of my father in his handmade Indian art work. The name of the plane is 'Windwalker'.

The artwork was done by John Stahr. Wonderful to work with and a fantastic artist.

Man... your phone camera gets great photos! I found myself wishing I had brought the Canon today so I could share the photos I could have taken with it... but these are beautiful. Couldn't top them with mine... at least without Photoshop.

Default Beautiful paint!

Most impressive, Leo.

I love your attention to detail - like how you painted the pilot's cuticles a matching blue

Will the N-number pass muster as far as contrast and lack of ornamentation? I suppose that depends on the mood the FAA is in on a given day.

I'm showing these to my wife. They make the -10 look absolutely awe-inspiring.

Do you mind showing us some pictures of the antenna farm on the belly, and where you stashed the ones we're used to seeing sticking out elsewhere? Like you seem to have done, I went for a minimum of protuberances in the slipstream. What kind of cruise numbers is the Windwalker posting?
