    Drained all the last of the fuel out this afternoon...................

    Got one last snap of the girl with her shorty wings on.

    Gotta finish up mounting the slings in the trailer for the wings and should be ready to go and head to Hays next Monday!!!

    Trailer is ready to rock.............I installed 4 carpet slings onto the walls - about 9 feet on center. Was originally going to build a 2x4 box frame so I didn't have to figure out precisely drilling holes into the steel studs in the trailer walls.........that was going to get kind of spendy for a 1-off trailer use....So I peeled back the roof trim and discovered a steel beam that went across both sides along the top of the walls......I decided to just use metal brackets and drill into the beams and screw the brackets through the carpet and loop it that way..............ironically, when I got done, I realized I was wearing my S-6 Coyote shirt.....along with a BUNCH of sweat!!!!










    If you're wodering what they look like once the wings are in Here's what they looked like when I first bought the plane and shipped it from West Virginia back to Michigan
