Default RV-7A JCarne

Well I just noticed this section here so I figured I would start a log so people could follow my build. The picture here puts a face to the name. Also I am done with everything on the tail except for the elevators.

Looks great, Jereme. I first flew my -7A in late January. You are going to LOVE it. I call it my Corvette in the sky compared to the Cherokee 140 I owned previously. Still have the ground version, which is a 1984 Corvette that mostly sits in the garage looking good

Ray I remember you posting about your first flight, awesome man. You may also notice in the pic that there is a car next to me; that is my wife's 64-1/2 mustang (planes and cars go together I guess haha). The car is getting the boot when my wings get here though! Okay it is just moving to a new temporary home.

I saw the picture and from just the corner of the car window and thought to myself "that looks like a 64.5-66 hard top". How bad is that?
I am the second owner of an unrestored 66 fastback which I have owned for essentially 30 years. Once the airplane is done the Horse gets its turn in the shop.

Sam pretty impressive you noticed that. My wife's grandfather gave this car to her when he passed on because she showed so much interest in it while younger. Getting my wing kit will be a double win because the car is getting moved to her brother's house and he is going to redo the engine for us. (he is a mechanic)

Well some what of a big day today. Not big in the sense that I completed a new component but I did make a request with the FAA for my tail number. I have been searching for quite some time but was having no luck finding something that was A) meaningful to me and B) easy to say. I finally settled on 187E.

1= first plane I am building

87= birth year

E= nickname in college

Well this happened today... I am waiting to see what Van's says about this. I don't mind replacing parts it's paying $31 dollars in shipping that I'm not fond of...

Well Van's said I could go ahead and just bend this back. (detailed on my other thread) Here is the after pic. Also new news, got my wing invoice and I'm scheduled to have wings crated on 6/12/17! Just in time for my summer break!

Default Right elevator

The right elevator only needs its leading edge rolled and it will be on the wall!

Just finished the right elevator today after spend 2.5 hrs rolling the edges yesterday. Rolling the edges on the elevator I thought were waaaay more difficult than the rudder.
