Default On the gear

One year ago I started constructing a building to build a RV-8 in. This past weekend we put it up on the gear. I had no idea how good that would make me feel. The wings are almost done also.

The time I have spent on looking up information has been plenty, but I'm glad we have this source for answers.

Default Congrats -looks great. Question on the floor???

Love the finish on your shop/garage floor and would like to know what you used to finish it. I want to stain and seal my floor a dark color with some character like yours.

I used three colors of acid stain and sealed it with an exterior sealer since it was more durable coating. If you need more details, email me at bjconst@geneseo.net
