Haven't updated here in a while so I figured I'd let everyone know what I've been up too. I'm in the proverbial 90% done 90% to go final phase of building. My seat cushions are out for upholstery, I'm fininshing up some minor body work on my used cowl. I managed to drill the rest of the holes in my windshield without doing any serious damage. I spent most of today tidying up my wiring harness. Things like that.

I have a two page punch list that I am working through and am thinking of new things to add all the time. Fortunately, I'm crossing things off faster that I am adding them so eventually, I should be done.

Still hoping to have this thing ready to fly this spring or summer but I'm not on any schedule. It will fly when its ready.

Doug, I like your attitude, It will fly when it's ready. It's good to see builders avoiding the EAA path, Easy Aircraft Assembly and keeping the Spirit of Experimental Amateur Built alive!
