TT: 246.5hrs

Life has been getting in the way and I have not built as much as what I have originally planned. Started my business which has been taking up much of the weekend time and a couple of holidays in between also have not been churning out productive building hours. I have completed the elevators up to a point where they need to be inspected. Quite a complex assembly requiring a pair of small hands specifically when needing to install the blind rivets on the elevator ribs. Very happy with the way they turned out. Trim tabs still work in progress - all the bending work on them has been done successfully though.

Tail cone assembly and match drilling has also been completed. Complete tail cone has been disassembled again for deburring, dimpling, priming and riveting.

Unfortunately life has taken some strange turns and the RV dream has faded. :( I therefor have no other option but to put this partially built tail kit up for sale.

Any reasonable offers would be considered. Tools included.
