Next item up on list is the center console. I believe this is scheduled to arrive today. I am really excited about this because its one of my favorite modifications to the plans. Yep, it will take me some time to install but as I have heard many times before "build the airplane you want, not the one somebody else wants". As I mentioned before I have already purchased the throttle quadrant for the console which is a non standard configuration. Jeff mentioned it a couple of times but now I really understand why he enjoyed building the fuselage kit the most.
Friday is another big day for me. I am getting the final kit from Van's. This is the finishing kit and includes items such as engine mount, canopy, wheels, brakes, and a ton of other items. Normally it includes the engine cowling but I deleted that option because I plan on ordering the "Sam James" cowl and plenum very soon. Hey with the money I saved on the seats maybe I can afford to buy it sooner?
I also just received a bunch of packages with carbon fiber cloth and associated fabrication tools. I have always wanted to work with carbon fiber so I am going to give it a shot. Where in the world am I going to find all the time needed to do all this?!?
Finally, in my last post I mentioned the security camera feed that my dad was checking my progress with. Today I decided to post a snap shot of the view that camera gives, or at least one of the cameras.
