Default Engine's on!

With the future-ex-mother-in-law babysitting yesterdqy I seized the chance to hang the engine.

90 minutes work, solo, had it done. 45 mins for the first 3 bolts, another 45 mins for the final bolt. Stubborn *******, it was too!

Tom,
I wasn't sure if you were confused or kidding. I used my iPad and for me it was right side up. Got home and checked with the PC and sure enough upside down.
Fixed, thanks.

Default Rollout of N987J

Put all the last pieces together (except fairings) and had a mini roll out ceremony last Saturday! It is getting close now.

That is such a wonderful sight. I know you are proud and you should be.
Keep chipping away at all the finish details.

Woohoo looking great Brice! I saw your plane on the front page this morning and didn't even realize it was yours.
