Sorry for the delayed response. I saw your panel and it looks great! I am installing a Skyview as well. Did you have the carbon fiber on the panel done somewhere? I had Aerotronics cut my panel and overlay a carbon fiber and soon I will have to spray a finish over it. Did you have it done or finish it yourself? Your build loooks great!
Enjoy the build. Its been a joy for me, I'm about 60%, and I've been working on it now for about 2 1/2 years (slow, I know). I'm on the wings right now, with most of the fuselage complete. I'm leaving the slats off and using VG's instead. I plan on modifying the center to make some sort of airfoil (beanie mod). I have about a 1400 foot dirt, grass, weed runway in my pasture. Haven't had much luck getting an EAA tech advisor to come out, and I've ask two.
Welcome to the family.
I wish you the all the best with your project. If you ever get the chance to visit the Zenith factory please take the time to stop by our builder assist facility too.
