Completed two RV8 wingtips and moved on to other fiberglass bits. Ripped out a 10yr old Andair fuel pump that has never been run, and it's completed plumbing, after getting an email from them "you're best off buying a new one".
All mixed with practice for my soon approaching competition aerobatics sequence in the non-RV .

Made a 10 min flight instead of a 30 min drive to help a friend’s friend get comfortable in his new Pa28.
On the way down I swung over my runway project and found more progress was made on my runway/taxiway. It’s been really slow going but I think I’m finally within small tractor means of smoothing and planting grass. We’ll see when it dries out again.

Default flew home from KOSH

Flew home in an airplane covered with OSH dirt....also just a few bugs on the leading edges. Good times.

Default getting down to the end....

Got the rest of the control cables connected, supported. Audio jacks installed, trim system wired to stick grip, trim motor tested....we've got like, 4-5 more little things to connect and then we start testing and putting the airplane back together. This avionics upgrade has taken 3x longer than I expected.
