What is your builder number, by the way? Just curious how long you've been at this. Mine is 72980.
Very close, mine is 72982. So we certainly had the same idea at the same time. I miss spoke (miss typed?), my wings are quick build but the plane was definitely built slooooowly.
Fortunately along the way there were many bright people that helped me . Vans Aircraft and their tech support, many of the build logs that helped me along the way (Bruce Hill & your's Bruce Swayze and many others.) A lot of vendors that provided excellent products or services; Stein Avionics, TSFlightlines, Advanced Flight and Dynon come to mind and others as well. And many friends that are builders or a particular great sheet metal guy in Fresno that offered help and guidance all made the path easier.
Certainly in that list, and not last by any means, is this website. A place where you can get clarity on the problem you are facing and get back to building. So thanks to Doug Reeves and VansAirforce.
If you are still building, keep moving along. That RV grin I have just does not want to go away.
