Finished the last of the slats on November 6th. The wing kit is now here and I hope to start assembly this weekend.
I finally have finished all that can be completed here in my garage. Soon, I will move all the parts to Sunrise Beach airport, Texas, for re-assembly and to get ready for the FAA airworthiness inspection.
