Nice!

Though wouldn't that be quite the insurance call... "Umm, state farm, I flew my wingless plane into my garage and tore through the kitchen..."

Congrats!!! So satisfying when the Lycosaurus first coughs to life. The purple paint looks awesome...now that the engine runs, the "EKG" graphics have new meaning.

Didn't you get the memo - you can't run your engine without the wings because the plane will oscillate, the gear will collapse and it will just roll over. It's true - I saw it on the internet!!!!!! LOL

Nice looking paint!!

Thanks all, now to sell that car or boat to pay for the rest of the Dynon stuff. Very happy with the EFII system, would have started in 1.5 seconds but I had the throttle open.....OPPS! Robert at EFII has awesome products and support! just noticed, check out the gal across the street walking into her house......(nothing to see here, move along. Just Bret with another hot rod engine thing......wait, is that a Prop) ?

One thing I discovered after painting this, was that a metallic paint will appear to be a lighter color in the sun than it will in low light, I like the look of this paint at dusk, but I would have liked to have gone to a darker purple, playing with saturation and other stuff, this is what it looks like in low light.....O well, it is what it is,
