Kit Arrives. Starting Section 6 Vertical Stabilizer

Kit arrived on September 16th.  Kathy helped me inventory and put away the contents.  Only a few minor missing items - some backordered and a few minor small parts missing.  I emailed Van's and they will send the missing parts.  Today I finished the first page of section 6 - basically fabricated the front spar for the vertical stabilizer.  Using PVC, plastic sheeting, and "plastic hardware cloth" I built a paint table that allows me to prime parts outside (may use in the garage with door open - if so will wear full respirator and protective gear).  For now I'm using SEM primer. About 3 hours of build time today.

The "End" of a long journey: The big day finally arrives!

Today Vic Syracuse came down and conducted the airworthiness inspection, we completed the paperwork, and he flew the first flight with me. ...
