well Im one excited man, thats for sure. Barely flown at all this year but hoping that sacrifice pays dividends next year, I plan on flying every day! Dozer work is done, just needs a final drag and roll with the cultipacker. Prepping the forms for a concrete slab in the shop now, and installing a solar system as well to power the whole airport
yup, still pluggin along. Project sat for a couple months as I worked on the airport/ barn (hangar). Many trees cut, many steel panels removed. Gotta get it all together because right now I have nowhere to bring the plane once paint is done!
Well it appears photobucket has ruined my thread. O well, progress being made. Wings are painted and coming home tomorrow, new roof going on the hangar amd got a dozer to try to get the strip graded right.
Well life has gotten busy the last few weeks so very little has been done on the kitfox. Trying to change that though and get the final fiselage finishing tapes done this week, then its off to the paint shop for everything. Had some fun the other day though flying another plane and took pictures of the reason life has been so busy lately. You can almost see the airstrip already
Little bit more progress, ran electric to the new fuel pump and trim tab (still waiting on my new switches to completely get wiring done) got the left side wrapped, and window installed. Also covered the rudder.
Also going to need a new battery. What is the best route that will fit in the kitfox box? Would like more capacity vs/ lightweight
Also this is for sale if anyone wants it. Sat for a couple years in a climate controlled shop but is in fantastic shape, just needs to be gone through quick and a couple things installed/ replaced. (Filters/ fuel lines etc..) $13k
Got a bunch of stuff from Powdercoat yesterday so spent a little while mounting tires and installing the header tank. Ran some fuel lines out of the tank through a filter to the Facet and up to the Valve in the panel. If anyone sees anything done wrong, as always, please chime in. Also installed the sticks back in to the plane and hit some parts that were sandblasted bare with some 2k epoxy primer so they can be painted to match the plane.
Panel back in. Replaced all the fuses with breakers. Going to install all new switches as well as a couple of these old ones have iffy contacts. Also have to ad onefor the facet fuel pump I added. Luckilly I have the breaker for the no longer used LORAN system to supply power for the fuel pump :). Anyhow progress...
Picked up a bunch of powdercoated parts this morning! Had the panel done in crinkle bkack and the rest in gloss black. They are sandblasting a bunch for me as well to paint green like the plane. Paint should be starting soon too!
