Default Oops ...

Sorry about those HUGE pics. I didn't see any choices or options for pic size or resolution in the posting process. Oh well ...

Looks real nice Terry. I like you panel with the old style 3 and the new glass. Best of both worlds and great backup. Good luck on the inspection and have fun flying the heck out of your plane. Is that a Catto prop?

Affirmative. That is the ever-more-ubiquitous 3-blade Catto.

Default Not really finished but getting closer every day.

I have been flying for 14 months and have 100 hours on the plane and as of today I have all the fairings and wheel pants on. I found a fellow (Sheril Helton) that does builder assist not 10 minutes flying time from my home airport. He has built several RV's and even a 10. He is a great guy and does really nice work. I had the nose pant on but was having a tough time finding time to finish the rest and he offered to help. Two weeks later my plane is back home and ready for me to finish the paint work. I am thrilled to have this over with. Now if I can just make the time to finish the painting.
Also the fairings from RV-Bits in South Africa are awesome. They fit like a glove.


Update:
Pretty much done now. Wheel pants are painted. Made a big difference in looks.
On the road again!

Just home from the shop. The folks at ArtCraft paint did a great job of making our baby look beautiful...

Default Just out of the paint shop!

Here's a picture of N417PR just out of Bobby Pott's shop in Tuscaloosa. I can't recommend him highly enough.
Now if I can just figure out how to keep the pesky bugs off of it!!! Sure beats flying around with a pink cowl!!!!

Sweet! If Richard Branson ever holds a fly in at 90NM she would look great next to White Knight
