It strikes me that we could better schedule our time if we knew about when to expect delivery of our modification kit. My suggestion is that we post our order number here, and the date when we receive the kit. Zenith has said they are shipping about 20 mod kits per day, so that should help us make a better guess when to expect a kit.

Of course, it depends on at least some of us posting here when the kit arrives. My order # is 7922, and was accepted on November 24. I haven't seen or heard anything yet.

Order #8152 - called Zenith last Friday and they told me will ship mid-March. They said they are shipping about 40 or so kits a week. //Dave
Order #8079 received yesterday 3/4/2010. Placed on 11/30/2009. Did the inventory of the box and everything is accounted for and in good shape. Will do the inventory for the tube tonight. Both covers for the tube came semi open but it does not look like anything came out.
Order #8189, placed 12/21/09. Just got UPS notification of scheduled delivery for March 26th.
Received on Friday 3/26. Drawings 6-ZU-1 and 6-ZU-1B dated 12 Feb 2010; the rest dated 25 Jan 2010; LAA drawing dated 18 Aug 2009. Box and shipping tube were in good shape. Some rivets on backorder.
It's interesting to note we apparently still have about a three month delay. I wonder if there are actually still that many modification kits in the queue, or if other factors are present.
Yep, I've been promised my spars and kit now for over 3 months... If I don't receive them
at the end of this month's promise; I would say that there are other factors going on that
