That's nice looking Jim.

As another forum member once told me "you are 50% done, only another 100% to go". Some tips on your engine : you will need to grind off some engine housing on either side of the flywheel to get the cowling to fit. Jan mentions this in one of his videos and I had to replace the exhaust pipe on my Viking supplied muffler because the original was going to penetrate the cowl as it drops down and transitions to the air ram.

Thanks and thanks for the tips! Feel free to throw out as many as you want :-)

 Are you still on schedule to move to the hangar?

Had to delay the move by a couple of weeks due to a problem with the canopy as in I had to replace it. Hopefully next week.

Bummer about the canopy :-( I was over at the Zenith factory last week and we were talking about the canopy and Steve said he has to ship quite a few new ones all the time.

 Good luck with the new one .
