Default Photos of Paint Job

After receiving a few requests to post photos post paint job but not sure where to post them. I have been busy getting ADS-B Out working, getting Garmin firmware and databases updated and lastly been FLYING! I finally got around to taking some photos this morning.

One photo shows the N-number I will be changing to whenever the FAA gets around to processing the change of ownership that was sent to them almost two months ago now. The rest have the current registration number in vinyl covering the painted numbers.

Thank you! I knew I wanted the blue and white but the accent color was up in the air - something bright, was leaning toward a shade of orange until the last minute then switched to the chartreuse.

Haven't done the new weight & balance yet as I have wheel fairings/pants on order and am waiting until everything is on before doing it.

Default Gear down - interior trial fit - starting on engine next.

Got all three wheels on and moved the plane off the build table onto the floor. Did a trial fit of the interior just to see what it will look like. Firewall is ready to start the engine work so I have to figure out how to get it un-crated and moved without a hoist.

Default Woo Hoo Engine Mounted

Got the last official bag of parts which included the bolts I needed to mount the engine. Now on to the electrical and avionics. Just one last part for the right gear leg!

End of the section 29 and end of the fuselage kit seems like a good reason to post for the first time in this thread. Excited to get started on installing controls and getting through the finish kit!
