Front Fairing, installed

Guess what?  Not even this step is without hassle.  Note the front strut is still naked.  You can’t put on the strut fairing after you put on the wheel fairing, so I had to undo / redo this step, too.

More work on the front fairing.  Ironically, at the time of this posting (9/29/17) I’ve already purchased the upgraded front wheel fork and associated modification hardware for this wheel fairing.  This has got to be one of the more frustrating parts of the plane.  I just really don’t like working with fiberglass, and it appears that it doesn’t like working with me.

Walter is a friend of mine who has been flying Cardinals and LSA’s.  He’s been following my RV progress and finally had his patience rewarded.  We had a nice flight and just enjoyed the scenery and generally wonderful flight characteristics of the -12.
