Shop / Workspace
....May 12, 2022

Things are moving quickly and nearing the end... Lord I hope. The building shell is done, all the interior wall framing is completed, drywall has been installed, primed and given one coat of primer and finish paint. The interior doors are hung and the door trim applied. The ceiling accoustaical grid is placed,... getting close. It is very true. You finish 90% of a project and you are blessed to only have 90% left to go. I should be able to take some good picture of the "airplane Shop" very soon... this will be a very fun space. Room to finish the RV, an extra work bay for other misc projects. A really nice fitness center space... Two big screen TV's... hope to have the devinition of a fun man cave... more to come.


Shop / Workspace
....Feb 20, 2022

Good image of the front. Forgive the shop sidebar, but I cannot get back into my build until the shop space is completed. Hope to have eveything wraped up by mid April. Mechanical and plumbing are mostly done, working on electrical. As we get into sheetrock, I'll start posting pics of the shop space itself. Really looking forward to this.


Shop / Workspace
....Feb 2, 2022

Things are finally moving. Electical, plumbing and mechanical are being installed. The front facade metal going on. Long time coming but it finally looks like something.


Paint Scheme Options
....Dec 18, 2021

Final updated paint scheme... I hope... Larger tail numbers and I like it...


Shop / Workspace
....Dec 8, 2021

I started this new building - office and workshop - more than 2 years ago. Material delivery issues and other economy factors has been a huge delay. But, thankfully, things finally appear to be moving forward. The primary structure is framed. The front facade and interior wall/floor framing are starting this week. So, hopefully in another couple weeks we will have a good image of what the new "airplane" shop will actually look like. Fingers crossed.


Paint Scheme Options
....Nov 9, 2021

More options on the paint scheme. Love the original design, but it had small lettering for the tail number. After some thought, I decided I really need the larger 12 inch letters... want to participate in the Caribean Air Rally, amoung other things and the taller letters are a requirement. So.. not like Jonathan can ever get finished until he puts paint on the body !! :)


Section 9 Elevators
....Sept 19, 2021

Match drilled, deburred, dimpled and primed. Finally applying some rivets again. Doing the elevators one side at a time.


Section 9 Elevators
....July 31, 2021

Everything clecod together. Match drill the skins, debure, dimple and prime. Should be riveting again sometime this week.


Avionics / Panel
....July 26, 2021

Carefully photographed everything as I took the panel apart. It has to come apart before you can install it again. The connectors and wiring harness, by Stein, are very well labeled.


Section 9 Elevators
....May 8, 2021

Well... have been putting these off for a while. Started working on these elevator tips a while back. Got very frustrated and set them asside. At a point where I have to attach them, so... can't avoid them now. What a PITA... They are together, but the process is ugly... thicker material, and they just don't go together. More work to do.
