That's it!!

We finished the top cowl.

We finished the bottom cowl.

We put it together.  Of course the wings, the landing gear fairings, the wheel pants are not in place but... thar she be!
Today, Monday, I will re-sand the wing that didn't turn out and reshoot it with white and two coats of gloss.  Tuesday morning I should be heading for Fort Bragg.  Thirty six days this project took us.  More time than we expected but the end result is everything we expected.  Perfect!!!

My reward for helping my son Jeff paint his plane above bondo and bonding?  He is going to fly down to Fort Bragg/Ukiah area, pick me up and we are going to fly/camp our way to Oshkosh, Wisconsin for the 2012 AirVenure EAA gathering in this plane!!!
Whoot!  Whoot!
