Les, You know the timeline. Close - yes, but not enough time to get 'done', have a DAR sign it off and get phase one flown off before Sedona's Dates. I've been party to some discussions about another Sedona "Fall Gathering". That I think I can do. I'll start looking at the 3rd or 4th weekend of September. Any later than that and Utah weather gets changable.

Now - Status on TH. The first part of the year has shown really good progress on getting towards 'Done'. Last weekend all electrical systems were checked. Comm radios and headset panel work as it's supposed to. Today I placed the fuel tank on the cradle only to find that the door on the fuel tank filler won't close. Back to fabricating a new door. I should get the windshield installed tomorrow. I ran into a small fitment issue with the throttle quadrant. Also back to fabricate status.

Last week ended with the final installation of the fuel tank, instrument panel and windshield.
It's down to final fiberglass fairings, double check all the fuel fittings, torque seal and set the travel on the throttle quadrant.
I'm in the process of getting a DAR scheduled for just after Sun N Fun.
