A long overdue update

Two months ago my wing kit got delivered. A few details on one of the boxes but everything inside was ok. A couple of hours of inventory and some extra time to place things on their storage area and I was ready to start building the second kit!.

I’m always surprised of how Van’s is able to fit some many things in such small boxes, and also give them enough protection that they have a good chance of surviving shipping.

Once everything was ready I started working on the spars. I’ll try to write about progress so far on a couple separated posts.

Adding Storage Space

Our house garage has ceelings high enough to allow me to build some kind of mezzanine on it. After I saw my neighbour’s setup I decided to “borrow :)” the idea and do the same.

It took a quick trip to the orange depot for six 2″x4″x8′, two 1/2″ plywood sheets, 3″ 1/2 contructions screws,four hooks and 6 feet of chain to get everything I needed. I’m pretty happy with the results.
