Default Crossed the 1000H Mark and Reserved ZU-LUX

Then for the BIG NEWS:
I quietly reserved my registration for my RV10 (ZU-LUX) as you can see if follows the same theme as my RV7 (ZU-LUZ i.e. ZULU-7) with it being ZULU-X or ZULU-10.
RV ZULU 7 over here:

I had my seats done exactly like my RV7 and designed my own RV ZULU 10 logo and had it embroided. I am happy with how my RV10 Seats turned out, so I can now show’em to you! It was all done in South Africa, with some geniune south african cow hide, sounds so foreign and luxurious
The Two Front Seats:

The Embroidery and Double Stitching detail with perforated RED Leather inserts

The Bottom Seat Detail
The Embroidery and Double Stitching detail with perforated RED Leather inserts

My Rear Seats is split, Left, center, Right and run the full length of the back like a car SIDEwall to SIDEwall. Also like a car you can remove any portion of the seats for extra storage space. i.e. Remove only center section for LONG stuff in between PAX. OR simply remove the whole LEFT ( OR RIGHT) rear seat for more bulky long stuff.

Looks great, but you should have used "Corinthian leather".

Default Looks great!

I am glad you got your back order for the Lord mount sorted out.
I know how disappointing it can be when you have to change plans
midstream and start something else.
Now on to the prop, baffles and cowl.

Default She's got legs!

This weekend we got her up on the gear and tucked away into the garage. She clears the garage door by 3-4 inches and when I tuck her tail into the corner I can actually get quite a bit of room on the nose. That's great news because I should be able to install the avionics and engine without having to move to a hangar. I don't think I can can get the prop to clear the door, but I can get quite a bit done before shelling out more cash on rent.
