Progress still being made on the second wing. As of now... flap,aileron all finished w/ the servo's all installed. Bottom sheeting all on. Wing tip on & the bottom side sheeted in. No need for any photo's... just a repeat of the first wing. But I'm almost ready to install the retractable landing light, I'll post photos on this tomorrow sometime... of course after the Super Bowl... Glenn

Spent most of the day in the shop mounting the retractable landing light. Took some time but was worth it. The servo is a Hitec HS-82MG & using a servo slow from
Electro-dynamics. Works just great'. With the light off in the shop, it lights up the shop fairly well, I'm happy with it. I'll finish up sheeting on the bottom then onto the the top side. Took the plans off the board, not needed anymore... Hopefully I'll work on the windshield soon next week. Glenn.

Finished sheeting & sanding out the bottom side of the left wing. Figured I'd slip on the wings and take a look. Need to finish routing the servo wires and such, then I'll finish the top sheeting. Getting there'... Glenn

Still plugging away on the wing... just about finished with sheeting the wing... one more piece to go. building wings isn't my favorite thing too do.., Once the wing is finished. I'll put the engine back on and assemble everything for an overall look. Only thing left is to make the wind shield. Getting there'... G.

The motorcycle is a 1972 CB-350 Honda with only 1137.4 miles on it. I've been working on it,... on & off for two yrs. It's all restored with NOS parts... runs like a top., in the process of changing the tires and tubes, just haven't finished it. It sat in my friends neighbors garage for 25 yrs... Bought it for 600.00 bones, I'll be finishing it this spring. Glenn

Glenn, what did you need to replace...& why new carbs & exhausts? 600 is a good deal.

Well mostly replaced all rubber components, all the cables. All mostly due to cracking and dry rot., So all new stock. The Carbs I rebuilt, again rubber vacuum boots inside the carbs. The exhausts, well their not to be had anywhere for as NOS, good luck, so I wanted to save the originals. Went with a top of the line exhaust system aftermarket, and a throatier sound. I know the 350's are getting rare in a pristine state. Saving what I got... I'll enjoy it this summer'
