Talking Steve P's mini-plane day!

Ok, so it wasn't a REAL plane day ala Dust et al, but I had a great time wetting out glass, doing a small layup, cutting some glass, talking canards AND (drumroll please!) sitting in a Cozy for the first time and making AIRPLANE NOISES!!!!

I'm really surprised that I fit in there with no problems at all (Steve, I love them strakes!) and just how comfy it is even in "unfinished trim."
Ok, enough of me going on about how much fun I had, time for some pics!

Nope, no book 2. I was too busy staring at the garage door tracks on the front and BACK of his garage.

Oh, Steve, I forgot to ask you - how you gonna get it OUT of there?!?!?

Okay Steve, we see your magic. How about putting Dust in the right seat. Then we'll know for sure you've cracked the code for teleporting.

Don't mistake your M drawings on the nose for peel ply.

It's a hundred and six miles to Chicago, we've got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark and we're wearing sunglasses.

Hit it!
