Finishing? A long road!

90% done and 90% to go! This has been one of the most interesting and time consuming parts of the project. sometimes I wonder did I build a metal airplane or a composite? Juries still out on that one! Anyway there are a lot of pictures here. Remember by clicking on a picture it will enlarge it for better viewing.

These top pictures are of the required Service bulletin for the rear fuselage.

Moving day! After fitting the gear it was time to move it down to the "big shop." this is an old picture taken in the fall of 2008.

This is an older picture showing the fitting of the cowl and spinner. Since this was taken the cowl has been finished and the engnie baffles fitted.

Never could get the stock door seals to where I liked them, so I went with the McMasters seals other builders have used. Now the doors can be closed with one hand.
