RV-9a: Calís build
Hi all. I am building a QB rv-9a at our eaa 517 hanger here in Missoula MT. I finished most of the tail (still have left elevator trim tab), and am working on the fuselage. The Philippines QB trip did result in some surface corrosion which I must remediate, but Van’s has been helpful on this. I am planning an o-360 carbureted lycoming with a fixed composite prop, and will respect Vno/Vne/Va speeds as I hate the idea of pilot induced trouble. Anyway, hope to post how it goes.:)

Please click on the Flickr link below to view photos of my build.

You can scroll left or right to see photos of the corrosion coming back from the Philippines. But again it can be remediate and Vans is correcting the situation.

Agreed nothing to worry about. Good luck on the build thatís a pretty place in Montana you are living in.

Thanks Steve and Vlad. In the beginning you tend to catastrophize every little imperfection. :)
Thanks for the support and welcome!
