Default Tony?s (tkatc) RV-8 build continues

On this snowy Saturday, some of guys from PA got the opportunity to help Amy and Vlad move Tony?s RV8 project to the shop so Vlad can continue the build. The quality of workmanship Tony started will continue and we look forward to helping Amy and Vlad.











Amy & Vlad, I wanted to start a new thread on this project you and others can document the journey completing Tony?s dream.

After a short 1 1/2 hr drive north, we arrived just in time before it started snowing heavier.

Hey Vlad, the pants go on the OUTSIDE of your boots. The only exception is with cowboy boots!!

Looks like fun - wish I was there.

Vlad, if you need any help on the -8 I would be honored to give you a hand! Tony spent time checking out my -8 and it would make me feel good to be involved.

Vlad,
Is new workshop in Siberia? What is the white stuff on the ground?

On a serious note: VERY cool project you are doing. Tony would be proud!
