Default BO parts

Van's being so busy, I thought perhaps someone else checked to see how they are doing with back ordered parts?

I just got my backordered parts last week. I was waiting on a canopy latch, wheel bearing spacers and axle nuts for an RV8. It was about 2 months after I got the finish kit.

A couple months on the Fuselage kit B/O parts. Several are back in stock but Vans says that they wait until everything is in before shipping. Apparently a bag of bushings isn't back in for a few more weeks.

At one point there was a backorder on the motor mounts. Does anyone know if that is still the case?
