Default roughing in the panel

much easier before riveting it all in. Using ipad for my moving map/foreflight.
funny how my delicate garmin radio package was delivered by UPS.

Default elevator FUBAR

Oops on the right elevator trailing edge. Didnít use hard table surface when drilling Alex wedge and both skins. Got a bow in it that was unfixable. Oh well. Penance comes with rework. Canít show photo as too unsightly.

Default Just wow!

Your resilience in this is unbelievably impressive. I don't know what your life experiences are, but somehow you became a very strong person with a crazy-positive mindset.

I would be wringing my hands over all the lost time, effort, and money and stressing over my near-death experience for a long time afterward.

I can almost see you in the cockpit there, waiting to be cut out by the firefighters, reaching for your cell phone,

"Hello Vans?", "Yeah, it's Cgeyman, I'm gonna need another plane."
