I couldn't agree more. I had confirmation my finish kit shipped last week after a 2 month delay from the original crate date, but still with a list of back ordered parts (gear legs, engine mount standoff, torque arms, canopy gas struts, steps, and some other bits and pieces), so not really sure what i'll be able to work on when it arrives.
When I asked for an approximate timeframe to get the missing parts all I was told was to wait a month or so after the kit ships and then enquire again.
As you say, its totally understandable given the circumstances that there are supply chain issues and back ordered parts, but it's the lack of any meaningful comms which is frustrating and make it hard to plan around.
Vans have been great to deal with in every other aspect except this, so really hope they can fix this up.
