Default She is finished

I just finished my RV-7 and wanted to share some pics. First flight is still some weeks away - now waiting for the permit to fly.
I worked very hard the last 16 months, used all my free time and was kind of addicted building this thing. I surely have stolen time from my family. I logged over 1600 hours actual building time and I probably spent the same time again roaming this forum and other builder?s websites. And I must say this forum is really great, most arising questions can be solved by just using the search function. And when this doesn?t help usually one will get answers when asking within one day!

Here are some details: Aerosport-Power IO-375, AE-400 Fuel Injection, Raven Inverted oil system, right tank flop tubed, Hartzell Blended Airfoil CS-Prop, dual 7" Skyview System, Classic Aero Interior, empty weight 1148 lbs.

And here she is:
