Default FS: RV-6A Project and O-320 FWF

I have decided that I don't have time to finish the RV-6A project to replace my damaged airframe. The project is complete with finishing kit. Wings, wingtips, tanks, and all control surfaces and empennage are complete. Fuselage is mostly done up to the point of needing the finishing kit, which is included. Currently have Upper forward fuselage clecoed together and in place. Everything is very nicely primed and the workmanship is excellent (or I wouldn't have bought it).
$18,500

I also have the Firewall Forward from my damage airframe (no prop strike) still mounted on the old airframe, so we can put a few gauges in it and run it if you are interested. It is a 150HP O-320 with 450Hrs SMOH with new CAM, overhauled case by Crankcase Services, yellow tagged crank and steel parts from Aircraft Specialties, new bearings and seals. Assembled by professional shop. The last oil samples were excellent. 1 Pmag and 1 Slick (have other slick and other Pmag as desired). The prop is a Sensenich Ground Adjustable 2-blade with TSNEW same as SMOH on engine. Comes complete with exhaust, baffles, oil cooler, oil lines and fuel lines as desired.
$14,000

I would let the whole package go for $30,000.

Pictures available on request via email or text. Please feel free to call or text for fastest response. the project and engine are in my shop right now, so I can walk out and give details or take additional pictures as needed.

I've had a lot of people ask for just parts of the FWF. I will only part out the rest if someone wants just the engine or engine+ but not the whole FWF. I have a lot of pictures available upon request.

After looking at the logbooks for an interested party I realized it's only 300SMOH. If somebody is interested it is still mounting on a rolling airframe and can be run without much trouble.

Kit is still available as well.

I'm open to offers.

You can see the tail feathers sitting in the purlins on the wall in this first picture.

I just verified the other day that the engine has 288.3SMOH and has a hollow crank, as many interested people have asked. Prop has 288.3SNEW.

Prices just dropped. I'd really like to free up some shop space.
