Fred, I need your email.

I'm glad to see WW is delivering as well as talking about all the internet losers, etc.

I just painted my wings and hope to have the rest within a week. Really helps hold

Down the corrosion. Even a drop of sweat will make a spot on the aluminum.

I plan to order the GRT engine monitor soon.

How will you access the gascolator? Mine is under the fuselage under the pilot seat.

 Hi Fred , thanks for the picture it really helped.  I to was a bit afraid
of removing too much and the ring crack or something, but the way you did
it is what I was planning to do, After a year of waiting I finally got my
parts from Dan Wesemen.  I'm about 90% with the 90% to go, and hope to
start flying off my 40 hrs. in sept and am using a 3000cc unit.  Are you
flying yet?  I see your in Bloomington Ill  I'm about 300 miles due south
of you just out side of mammoth Cave Ntl. park in Ky.      Thanks again Ron

Doors are on and have my prop.  Do you have your motor and 5th bearing?

Hi there,

Mine is on the gear and the motor is mounted. Yesterday I put oil in the motor and using a distributor with the gear removed and a drill,

I pumped oil in it.  Still need to adjust the valves and get a prop. I haven't finished the inside, doors, windshield and will have to work on the cowling.

Stop by if you are in the area.
