I'm going to start posting pics, just need to empty camera so all the family pics are properly filed and not in the way of the plane pics

battery hold downs are just about finished, just need some more grade 7.5 threaded rod.

Am rewiring the landing gear and using high quality micro switches and relays

Well, you would think that cowl that was formed in place would go right back on.

put on and taken off 20 times. trimmed 1/8 inch off both sides. bonded 14 boards onto plane, near perfect fit with 3, 3/4 sockets for weights. trimmed 4 boards on the plane with hand saw, oops.

ready for flange.

glassing is stacking up, air cleaner cover, firewall and flange

well, last evening we pulled the nose gear, it has been bothering me for a long time, prior partner wired it in and it was a rats nest of wires.

Well now i know why the one diode only worked in one color. Broken wire, time to properly wire it up.

hate fixin what others did for me, but nothing on the plane will be done poorly.

my list is getting real short
