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.
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.
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.
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.
