Default Finally posting that it's flying

A post that should have been written a few months ago. Well the plane is finished, flown, finished phase 1, and has gone on a few trips! I finally had a chance to take a moment and get this post up. Thanks to everyone that has answered questions here on VAF or direct over the phone. The guys at Stein and Garmin were great help when I wired the panel....in one week btw! Dual G3X touch screens, Garmin 650, and a backup AVMAP. I also have to thank my very understanding wife who has put up with and supported me on this 3 year 2 month project. We now have a family airplane!

Well, it is about time

Sounds like you have been a bit too busy to post anyway.

Congrats on the new bird, looks good.

Default Beautiful!

Can't wait to see it up close, Justin.
Like your paint scheme also.
Did you paint it or have it done, and if so by whom?
