Thanks Lee, one of our EAA 430 chapter members Dan Donavan who owns Allform Welding in Carlsburg, WA and I did the exhaust. His business card is on our chapter's web site. www.eaa430.org just click on a newsletter and scroll to the bottom. He also did my engine mount.
Thanks Lee, I purchased the tool kit Zenith offered. The kit came with 150 of each size, 450 total. I purchased 50 more of the small (3/32) and the large clecos, and 100 more of the 1/8 mid size. I could have used 50 more of each. Later in my build I purchased 12 of the 3/16 clecos and really needed them. The wings have more than 1000 rivets, more than 500 on top and bottom each, that can use up a lot of clecos when you rivet the skin. Good luck, Randy
Hi Lee. I agree. You will never know what unconditional love is until you have kids. I think I will have the same love for my own airplane. We are not far away from each other, maybe some day we will fly together. Good luck
Hi Lee, Yes I layed out and built the center console. I did get the idea from the SLSA
ch750 from AMD. I built a cardboard template and after it was what I wanted I then cut out the .032 sheet metal. It was pretty easy and sure opens up the panel space. I went in 5" then upt o the bottom of the panel. I also routed all my wires, fuel lines etc. thru there so they would be out of sight. Let me know if I can be more help, Jim
