Great insulation!

Try to get as much of the wires/cable as possible thru the FW before hanging the engine..

Engine mount installed today and landing gear about to be mounted. My panel shipped today from Stein and the engine should be here in late June. Moving right along...

First engine start

EGT did not show and CHT reading was lost after 20-30 seconds so I made it a very short run. I let it settle at 1020rpm and then did the slow lean... got up to 1120 before quickly dropping and shutting down.

Some good progress over the last week or so. Engine mount and landing gear have been installed and the left wing went on (temporarily, of course) yesterday.
