I have had a GOOD solo week---all of the longerons are in and tacked, she is straight, square & plumb!!

The hard part is to come --- keeping her that way while installing the diagonals and gussies and finish welding it!!

John was feeling under the weather today ---so no picts  sorry

will buy a camera when I get back from WOS I will be reunited with "Rose", I am to drive for Skip for some test runs!!

Sparky, can you tell my about the trans setup you use? Or point me to a thread with that info if it has been posted? I heard you speak of it a little.
