FAA registration paperwork sailed through yesterday!
Torqued the main spar bolts down, then installed the rear spar bolts. Wired up and tested the navigation lights and strobes. Also glued up the air box snout.

Mike Hilger of SteinAir was a great help with the Garmin setup. Today I brought online the transponder and com2
Last night Cheryl assisted drilling a couple gussets. Tonight I routed the Pitot lines and made final connections. Also installed the tank bracket bolts and safety wired them.
Cheryl and pulled wires from fuselage to wing and made several connections. This brought online the wing/roll servo, landing lights, pitot heat, outside air temp, magnetometer, and transponder.
