Thanks for replying and the invite to Oshkosh. I won't be attending this year, but I would like to meet you and visit your plane sometime. I'm moving toward attaching the wings, but need to do some work around the cabin first. I'll call this week to see if you'll be available for a visit soon. Thanks again, Jeff
Thanks for the compliment on the build. I'm really trying hard to get to first engine start. Need to clean up all of these wires and get the windshield back on. I threw some pictures on my wall of the instrument panel and center console. Take a look at my checklist if you have any questions what's on it. Take care and good luck on your build.
Glad you are mulling through those old posts.... I read them again, after your comment - and they are just as important today as they were then! Do visit our websites, we have a training school/build and a humanitarian aviation operation....
I am using zinc phosphate primer that comes in a 12 oz spray can. It is a mil-spec replacement for zinc chromate and is less toxic. I am using Tempos A701 yellow zinc phosphate. I have not been able to find the same brand in bulk, just 12 oz spray cans. It is available from Wicks, Aircraft Spruce and Speciality as well as sky geek (The cheapest).
