Got this idea from VAF contributor, worked great. If my memory was better I could tell you who it was, but it's not better...

Just thought I would let you know you were correct!

You are making really good progress and are doing high quality work. Sometimes when you get to the ?what to do next question? you just have to pick something that needs doing and press on assuming it all needs to get done sooner or later. I?m about at the 80% point and so far have not painted myself into a corner. My reality is that I?m too busy to work on mine very often.

Don,
Thank you for the kind words! They mean a lot to me. Sometimes just a note on here, even if it is that the photos are not coming through, is something! I now work pretty much solo in the evenings, gets a little lonely, lol. I took almost all of 2016 off working, so I redoubled my efforts in 2017 to try and make up for it! I really need to get my motor disassembled and take an inventory of what is bad...a little apprehensive about that. Wing repair after I get the fuse ready to hang the engine...
