Post Best/Several Good -8 Build Pages

So I've found that I use RV-8 builder web pages often to give me ideas before I start the next section of my building... Can some of ya'll suggest the best (in your opinion of course ) builder web pages which I can check out for ideas?

Thanks!

Arguing on the internet is like having a competition to see who can hit a brick wall the hardest. You may win, but you're still an idiot.

Default RV Sites

anyone know if Dan Checkoway is going to market his RV build log - or return it to the internet? It sure helped me when I started 5 years ago.

Default some of the best weren't metioned yet so here...

My favorites weren't mentioned yet so I'll throw this out there:

Mark Richardson who has one of the best RV8 paint schemes I've ever seen
http://rv8bldr.tripod.com/rv-8_project.html

I liked Larry Bowen's website which is now in his archives since he sold the 8 and is building a 7 (yuch... :-) ) start at the bottom of the archive list and work up.

Mike Robbins
http://www.romeolima.com/RV8//MikeRobbins.htm

Excellent website you can learn a lot that would apply to any RV

Perhaps one of the mods (or Doug??) could make this a "sticky" so the thread will stay around? It's valuable info!!!
