Thanks guys.

Seems like everyone that posted was part of the build somehow. Exchanged parts with Andy, bought baffle material from Bret, hoses from Tom, Mike weighed it, Kent bought the RV-7 that was the engine doner.

Then there is the encouragement from those who made the journey and willing to share what was learned. And of coarse Professor Vic, who's doing a great service to the Vans community.

To quote the famous line from a Stix song " Its time for me to fly......"
