I haven't been on canard zone in a while. But since there was a post asking for more updates to show participation, here is my update.
Since the last photos shown, I have been working on systems, electrical, and engine installation. I am making good progress on those fronts. There is something satisfying about the systems work. It sounds simple, but I was happy when I could turn on the master switch and hear the click of the solenoid.
In the interest of forward progress and my lack of electrical skills, I had Stein wire up my instrument panel. The price was actually pretty reasonable considering how much wiring they had to do, and how much time I figure it saved me. With my new job, time is less and less available. I highly recommend them if you are considering using them.
We have also spend considerable time working on mounting the oil cooler, fuel injection components, and working on baffles. I am doing a hybrid aluminum and fiberglass baffle system. I have to say the baffles are an annoying project. The go on and come off so many times and it is a lot of fiddling. Doesn't seem like you get much done for the amount of time spent. But I think I am on the homebound stretch for those.
Oh yea, a few other tidbits... i got my prop and the upholstery is done too.
There are many more details on my blog about all of this. You can find the blog here: http://garaggio.word....com/chronology
Here are a few photos to show some of the things I have been working on since my last post.
