Default Congratulations!!!!

All your hard work is about to pay off. Life will change for you. You will go to the hanger not to build but to fly. It's quite the transition. Have friends look over your aircraft for anything missed. Fresh eyes always a good thing. Have fun. Joe

Congrats on the "Pink slip"

Joe has a good idea about having extra eyes for one last check before first flight.

Wow thanks for all the love everyone! I'm just glad that my build log has helped others. Thanks Doug for letting me put my log on this site.

What color are you planning to paint it, or should I say her, now that your project has transformed into an airplane?
No paint in the near future, just want to enjoy some good ole fashion Avgas! I'll eventually paint it but I'm not mentally ready for that yet. haha

I got a 45 mile radius. It's good enough that I can buy fuel at two cheaper airport in that range ($1 per gallon cheaper) but not big enough to get to anywhere major. No worries though, lots of testing to do!

Enjoy the blue skies!
Hahaha I forgot about the barrel! Too funny
