LOL!

For the other poster: Catto prop mated to 197ish of HP. I'm ready for a SARL race to show off the performance this combo is yielding.

Yep. That's me.

No paint on the plane. 100% vinyl wrap from spinner to tail.

Turbo,

F45 north hangers. PM me and I'll provide the follow me truck! I might fly tomorrow if the winds calm down. You gonna be at Stuart? I could come by the turbo cave?

Default N888EX - Buttercup Ready for flight..

2+ years. This picture was taken the day i moved (Buttercup) it to airport, early October. On Tuesday, Dec 3rd, the aircraft was deemed airworthy by the local DAR. Currently waiting for a decent day to fly it. Special thanks to Scott Trask for all his hard work and assistance helping me out and use of his hanger, my wife Diane for her great support in the build process, Mark Yankovich the new DAR in the area who helped with the paperwork and doing the inspection, VAF website for a vast amount of knowledge, and most of all, I give thanks to My Lord Jesus Christ who has blessed me so greatly in my life, giving me so many opportunities and blessings.
