Your picture is pushing me to install my interior package. I thought I was OK leaving the side panels off and got used to it. Very nice work. I haven't seen the carpet on the areas around the seats and center. I may have to consider that.

Very nice. I installed the AeroClassic seats and interior in my 9A, I was quite happy with the finished product.

Now go fly it!

Nice. It is a good feeling to be finished - well at least finished enough to fly! I guess we are never really finished. Have a great phase one. Good luck doing the fuel calibration with the g3x. I have done mine several times and still not as good as I would like. If you figure it out, let me know!

Feelsgood when the list of remaining steps fits on a single paper!

Congrats.
I hope I am only a few months behind you.
Are you going to bump up the gross weight to 1750#?
