I look forward to looking at Brent's build site everyday, along with Jeff Mitchell's and Steve Riffe's.

A special note is Bob Ellis's site I have been learning a great deal here too!

Keep up the great work gents!

I have a few pages of pics on EAA326's chapter webpage. You can access it thru the link in my signature. It's more pictorial than technical.
My RV-8 was built with an auto conversion. A turbocharged Mazda rotary engine. So those curious about alternative engines might find it useful.
I flew it 16 hours but only enjoyed the experience for a few minutes, although I did enjoy building it. I plan to mount the complete Mazda power egg on a 'Snowplane' aka 'Aerosled', or an Airboat.
I'm posting the RV8 conversion to Lycoming power now.

Many of the sites referenced in this thread are no longer up. Anyone have an updated list?
