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.

My order number is #7853 on November 23. Haven't heard or received anything yet.
My order number is #7890. Zenith told me it would probably be here around the first or second week of january....

I spoke with Zenith yesterday. My order is 7918. Status = Flying and Ready to install. They said I was number 61 in the shipping list and that it would be about 1 -2 weeks probably. They are trying to ship 10/day.

hope this helps
My order number is 7860 and I haven't seen or heard anything yet. I hope it comes soon because installing the kit is all I have left.
My order number is 8055 and it was accepted 11/27/2009. Status = Was Flying and Ready to install. Center spar is out and separated.
I submitted my order on Nov. 23 & got order No. 7851. So far, I have not yet received anything, nor has my credit card has not been charged. On the other hand, I received my order from Spruce, today, with my practice rivets, piano hinges to convert my ailerons, etc. So, there's plenty to do while I wait.
Hi Terry,

As fas as I know you do not have to convert your ailerons in order to install the balance. I´ll keep them as they are.
My order number is 8058 ordered on 11-27 I was told I was 179 on the list, would be the end of January getting the kit. I call zenith for this information.
Order #8189, placed 12/21/09
On 12/31/09, Zenith charged my card for the upgrade kit (Order No. 7851 placed 11/23/09). Presumably the kit is packing and shipping.
order number is #7853 placed on November 23. Hit my credit card today 1/6. Assume that means it's shipping today.
Notice the time delay between Terry Phillips and Bill Pagan, yet their order numbers are only a couple apart. It suggests that not too much happened between 12/31 and 1/6. Part of this is holiday, of course, but it suggests there may have been some other snag, like material availability or something.
