It's not really your airplane until you spatter it with some of your blood. I managed to do that when unpacking my empennage kit!
I read your blog and saw your post about many clecos/sore hands. I learned this when I took the EAA sheet metal class, so I bought this
. It proved its worth when I clecoed the horizontal stabilizer assembly together a little while ago (500 clecos).

Pet peeve: "Lose" (rhymes with "booze") is the opposite of "find". "Loose" (rhymes with "juice") means "not tight".
