This looks awesome! I also admired the blue of the first series F-Type. I will paint mine either in this blue or the san marino BMW blue.

Our -8 got weighed this week… and had it its first engine run. Couple of tiny leaks, otherwise all good.

Hangar


Reviewing the builders work to get myself caught up.

The previous owner has done a very good job and finished a lot of the project. I'm honored that he ask me to purchase this project while he deals with other issues. Inventory is done and I'm looking forward to the adventure.

Jeff,

Mount up the vertical stabilizer while you have the fastback skin in place.
It will need to be trimmed to clear, and probably a new nose rib formed.
