I am almost tempted to add stripes to the rudder. Almost...I'm tired of painting.

As it sits, it weighs 524 lbs. I am pleased.

Made a tentative appt with the DAR for the week of Thanksgiving.

I have to correct the above weight. I weighed it by lifting each mount and setting on the scale, then adding all readings. Aircraft was not level.

So, I installed the doors, the prop, ELT, ipad, and rolled it up on three scales at once. Here are the readings:

Nose wheel=201

Right Main=174

Left Main=183


The only items left unaccounted for are the wings, struts, slats, and flaperons. I believe that I will be all-up just under 650 lbs.
