Default I didn't make it.....

I had 2 weeks vacation over the holidays and had a goal of moving to the airport by the end. I didn't make it. I had a dozen things on the list and 3 big ones.

HOWEVER, I was very close. I had a setback on the instrument panel lettering that cost me a week (the whole thing wrinkled when I sprayed the clear top coat on) Tell me I didn't spout a few choice words THAT time.

As of now, redoing the panel is THE LAST item I want to finish before moving.

In order to create a FEELING of completion, I yanked the blue vinyl that I have been looking at for the last 7 years. Here are the resulting gratuitous shots.

Just ordered my Finishing Kit,
A friend has graciously offered to pick it up and drop it off in my hanger so I will see it in 5 1/2 months. I cant wait!

If you are asking about the red thing, it is a Rod Bower air filter/ram air unit.

Correct must be the red thing you are asking about, which is Rod Bower's Ram Air...the Alternator is not visible in this pic.
