Pics of Me Working
Hi, I'm David Mack. In 2006, I decided to build my own Van's Aircraft RV-7 200+ mph two seat homebuilt aluminum airplane and this is a log of the experience.

I reattached the handle to the canopy now that it's repainted.
I painted the other side of these aft section of the instrument panel braces.
Then, I spent an hour sanding and trimming the empennage fairing. I cleco'd it back to the empennage/fuselage to see how it's fitting. It's much better than it was before.
This section around the right horizontal stabilizer to fuselage joint still needs a bit of filling and sanding for these gaps.
The gaps between the fairing and the horizontal/vertical stabilizer skins have been nearly eliminated. I still need to sanding down the edges where I laid up the epoxy/flox.
The front looks really good.
The left side looks good as well.
The joint between the left side of the horizontal stabilizer and the fuselage is really nice--no big gaps anywhere. I want to make the right side look like this.
