Nice inventory management to have the kits showing up right on time, Bill. Keep up the great work!

Steve, that is an awesome picture. Save it, frame it; it could be a conversation piece in your office or at home. I'm getting really jealous of all this progress; this past winter put me behind in my schedule. I've made a lot of progress this past month, but nothing photo-worthy (interior work, systems, etc.) so it looks like nothing much is going on.

Harking back a bit in the thread, Brandi is a door guru? Hmmm. Maybe you guys need to come see the Grand Canyon this winter.

I've been pretty much just doing odds and ends waiting for the finish kit to get here(pretty boring when you don't see much progress). I decided to put the tail feathers on just so I could see some kind of progress. In a couple weeks it will be full steam ahead, looking forward to seeing it up on its own legs.

So we starting a Brandi tour schedule as a door guru?

I'm working on my doors this weekend and could use the assistance of a subject matter expert. I have to resize the door gap after applying fiberglass to the infamous cabin cover flat spot.

Sounds like Brandi may have a new career if she wants to stop programming.

Well, it's not huge progress but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. I have the cast pedals with 'R' and 'V' on them and fitted them to the stock pedals. Then i had them powder-coated a textured neutral two-tone color to help hide dirt.



I also replaced the brake tubing with Bonaco lines. Looks much prettier. Now I'm ready to install a panel.

Default Cool pedals!

I really like the textured powder coating.

Default She can stand on her own!

After only 5 1/2 years my baby took her first steps(under human power) and now stands on her own! She a little wobbley(a bit tail heavy) and starting to out grow her house.[IMG][/IMG]

Default Fuselage Progress

There hasn't been a recent progress post, so I thought I would contribute a picture of riveting the lower fuselage skins.

Always can't wait for what's next!
