As I haven't gotten the fuselage yet it won't matter at this point.
Vans asked shortly after I placed the order if I wanted them to hold it since the avionics usually did not have as much lead time as the other kits but I asked them to send it on hoping I would be getting the other kits when they were actually supposed to ship. Ha ha.
Ok, thanks. I was just curious. Either the back-ordered items are now in, which would make sense since you got yours, or they are specific to the Dynon package, because Van's told me their lead time is extremely short and then Steinair would be "a little less than 8 weeks on their end." I placed my order (Garmin package) and paid the 25% down, expecting to owe the balance in ~8 weeks... turns out they need the balance paid up front before they can kick off Steinair.
