Well here we are, spring is upon us and we are making progress, the cowling is back from the fiberglass shop and we have fit and installed the camlocks, some we will need to change to a smaller stud, I goofed on the measurement before ordering. left to do now are the two door openings, one for the oil dipstick and the other for the oil pan heater and battery maintainer. flush out and finish the air intakes and the cowl is complete. Have the latest update from Dynon to install, but that is just a computer upgrade which takes only a couple of minutes.

last but not least re-mount the prop and re-do the weight and balance before test flight. First flight around the corner after over 10 years of work. Joy of Joys! Will have to take photos and video fo you all and try to get some good sound to go with it, the 8 cyl Jabiru has a unique and beautiful sound to it.
