Sent Final Engine Payment; Painted Panel
What's the deal with this envelope? Well, it holds my check that I sent out to Superior Air Parts today. They called and told me that my engine was going to the test stand tomorrow and will be crated and ready to ship on Monday. I overnighted the check and if they get it Monday they will ship the engine then. So basically I'm looking at getting my engine by the end of next week. Yeehaa. I would like to hang it as soon as I get it. I really can't see a reason not to. I actually think the wiring and stuff will be easier with the plane on the gear because it brings it up closer to my eye level. My fuselage is really a bit too low now to be comfortable for wiring. Anyway...gotta get this sucker on the gear next week so I can hang the engine.
Next I went out to the garage and prepped, primed and painted the panel. I think it came out OK. I may end up wet-sanding it and repainting it. We'll see.
