What's your plans for finishing the wood off? I'm in the same spot with my MK4 project.

Fabric For Me Mr. Mostly because I like the way it looks. You could easily do a small amount of super fill and paint and I believe they would look just fine,

Keep at it TJay,  wont be long now!.   Wish I was working on my airplane projects.   I'm a bit further north, made it to Greenville SC where wife's daughter and grandkids live.  I'm doing projects for them now.   Women really do need a man around for those honey do projects.  I guess I got nominated here.   Keep on the fox, it will be ready for that first flight soon.  Keep up with the progress pictures also.  JImChuk

Better all the time.  Wish I had your ambition.  Having a hard time getting back in to working on the Avid myself.  You will be flying before me.   Keep it up and keep us posted.  Are you putting a door in that duct so you can shut it in cooler weather?  JImChuk

Maybe next year Jim, for now its gonna get some blue tape if needed,

The best way I found to get back into the project is clean the whole shop/garage including all the benches, It is amazing how much more you wanna work in a clean work area,

I think you guys have been looking at some of my pictures I've posted, and the rest of the garage is shown if you look beyond what the picture was about.  I should take your advice and do a complete cleaning.  :-)  JImChuk

All set up now to run Gravity Feed and Or the electric Faucet Pump, decided to put in a Fuel pressure gauge to see how its doing since my MGL is to old to have that option, also thought that would be a nice spot to have my low fuel header tank light,

Ed,

I can find mine only because I know where to look.  Having binoculars hanging by my door help too.  :lmao:

Looks great.  Think you might get her up in this Spring?  For what its worth, these tires seem to like about 4.5 psi.  Anything higher starts to make things a bit bouncy.

Probably more like this summer sometime, This nice weather makes me want to work outside around the house more than sit in that garage, Thanks for the tire tip
