Hey Andy,

Sounds like youíre a few hours ahead of me. I have everything scuffed and ready to prime. Iím using rattle can primer from Home Depot. Rustoleum self etching primer.
I canít imagine doing these builds without a forum like this or seeing pictures of actual components being assembled. Vans could do so much better with their drawings and instructions. So much is left to the imagination or trying to look ahead and see where things go together which tends to waste a lot of time.

Cheers

About my hours.....yes....I have a long way to go. I think I'll be flying my butt off over the next year. Did five hours of training over the weekend and with the good weather here in Fresno should be able to stack up a lot of training...

As far as diagrams... as soon as I figure out how to attach photos I will.

Go to it Andy! Always great to anticipate another RV gracing our California skies! Come out to KHAF when the temps get a bit too high out in the valley (quick flight in a 10!)

Finished another weekend of three lessons and about nine hours of training.

VS finished!
Rudder- what a pain in the rear doing that trailing edge! Almost done.
HS good start.

Next: another primer session. Build cradles for HS.

Week #5 since delivery of kit.

Last week was way too much work, dang!

Yesterday was a good build day:
Riveting the horizontal stabilizer skins.

NOTE: getting the inboard nose ribs riveted was very difficult for me. The problem was figuring out how to adapt the skins near the leading edge to the nose ribs.
It is now done and looks "OK" which is not what I would normally accept.

Also, much of the elevator is started.

WJB-

I look forward to getting out to Half Moon Bay to meet up. I have also had a shout-out from Livermore.

This Fresno thing is great for flying due to typically "boring" weather that supports a lot of flight opportunities. But, I gotta admit, the heat in the summer season!!!! Ugh.

Any meet-ups? I'll be there.

Andy
