Dan - Love your paint job; elegant and clean. We hope to do something similar to ours when the time comes. How do you like your -8? Probably a silly question but I would really like to hear your impressions and performance, thoughts on comfort, heat etc. We're up on the gear (just) and starting firewall prep before hangin engine. Have fun! Bill Dicus

Default Object of Desire

I've been waiting for just over a year now to post on this thread, and now I finally can. Alan at Texas AeroColor in Brady did the paint job and Amy Young in Austin did the airbrush work. I shot the clear on the cowl last week and took pictures this weekend.

It is pretty fast...for a Kitfox. He toyed with me for a little while, slowing down into the 60's (knots). The AOA was all lit up and yelling at me. I didn't want to drop the flaps for photogenic reasons. Anyway, it was fun MCA practice.
