Default Keep it up

Jereme,
Seeing your strong progress is a constant motivator for getting me out to the hangar, and for that I thank you. As others have mentioned, your work looks great and your progress is impressive.

Thanks Taylor! I'm really truly glad that my build log is doing what others have done for me. Looking forward to some more -6 posts!

Well I have been putzing around a little, but now that my primer is finally here get ready for the train to start rolling again before winter!

Started fabricating the mount for the ADAHRS unit.

Riveted nutplates to the fuel valve and finally got the right screws shipped in, I didn't want the look of AN3 bolts here.

Well I finally got some time to do some priming and painting. Pretty much all I have left now is the seats (which are ready) and the front deck (which is not).

Also decided to start the front deck while I wait for a couple of things in the mail.

Well I have been kind of all over the place just having fun. I'm gearing up to start focusing on the front deck as you can see in the last pic.

Test fitting all the fuel lines I ordered from Tom S. Great guy to deal with!

20181021_141157 by Jereme Carne, on Flickr

Fuel pass through on the firewall, went with the steel fitting here.

Finished rigging the flap motor and installed it in the fuselage. Van's only calls for an AN365 here but these guys give me the warm and fuzzies. I'm using them on my control linkages too. For only a little bit of money and what I think is added safety it is worth it.

Trimmed up some rudder cable fairings and drilled them to the fuselage.

20181021_173825 by Jereme Carne, on Flickr

Installed the controls after spending quite some hours getting the fit of things just right with the brass bushings. It was time well spent, these things feel like they glide on air.

Started yesterday on the front deck, crazy to think that this section is the last of the major metal work.
