spars.jpgI finished up my wing spars tonight, all in all it was an easy build.  My transmission went out on the Explorer and is gonna cost 1500.00 bucks to fix........ So that will delay my next and last aluminum order for a few months.  Time to make wing ribs and tidbits.

I finally have my wings kit on order. It will take a couple months to get it. I would like to see your wings before I get started...

  I'm an ASE Master myself, just not a tranny rebuilder.  I loose sleep over paying someone to fix my stuff, drives me nuts.  I for once am on the other end of the repairs, I have no idea what parts he needs to fix and no idea if it will be fixed right.  Hate it Hate it Hate it!!!!

I do those transmissions , if we lived closer I would trade trans repair for some of those fantastic parts you make.
