Wow did not expect this. But all was taken care of by Van's as always. Some things just happen. Four skins for the empennage had to be replaced.

AW, No Problem. That'll buff right out.
 
...and a few globs of Bondo

Seriously, Van's is pretty good about shipping replacement pieces in a timely manner. Build around it in the meanwhile--if you can.
 
Dave,

I finally received the replacement parts on July 11th but have been on the east coast and just got home this week. Trying to get things organized and should start build 1st week sept. Thanks
 
Webb,

Yeah, but on the bright side I have a lot of practice pieces for dimpling and countersinking. Oh yeah almost forgot, lots of blue covering to practice removing LOL.
 
Just think of what you can make. I built a tool box that fits in the forward baggage compartment.
