Finished Panel and Interior

So I am getting everything back in the plane to get it ready for the big weigh in and I am really hoping for under 1100 lbs empty weight.  I tried to build light, but the proof will be shown pretty soon.   Here you can see my panel and all its components back in place for the final time, the seats and most of the aluminum covers are in too, but of  course they might come back out at some point.   Just a bit more work on the interior and some finishing touches on the exterior and everything will be on-board the plane and she'll be ready for to get on the scales..  Oh, and I got my EXPERIMENTAL placard installed on the back wall too !

  1. looking good.

    I think you will easily make 1100#. My -7 has similar engine and interior, it came in at 1095# with carpet and full base/clear coat paint.
