Sorry to hear that Ron! Is she involved with the construction process at all? Just wondering, 'cuz I'll be dealing with the same thing in my little world. I am trying to talk it up as much as I can to get her involved with the process. So far, so good...she wants to help! I am going to put cable TV ...

Good question snap. I read it somewhere...I think on the Van's website on the story page.

You're right though, the numbers are great either way!

Thanks John, I am happy with it so far!

Yeah, I know about the 3 hour burn rating. 5/8t" is required for that wall, and, unfortunately, it will have to be mudded-but not the others! :)

I used 5/8" for the ceiling, and 1/2" for the other walls.

mmmmmm......beeeeerrr...it's that time!

I'm pretty limited on mudding experience as well, but I have done it enough to know that I don't want to do it if I don't have to!

Beer fridge is a neccesity and will go right under 4x8 table, already have the spot planned!

I have been doing a lot of reading and research on the rotary engine, and like spike, am a long time from this point, but this engine has definately got my full attention! I thought, without a doubt, that I'd end up with an IO-360, but now I am wavering from that thought. Be fun to watch over the ne...

The shop is comin' along...

I spent Sunday working on my shop, doing more drywall. Here's a shot of the 1/2 in two and half car garage that'll used for aircraft manufacturing. http://www.rivetbangers.com/albums/hangar/5_23_004.jpg Where the saw horses are, there will be a 4x8 foot table. The florescent light will be hung above...

p-wich, I am going to use 988 or NAPA 7220 rattle can on my non-alclad and mating surfaces. I don't think it will take extra time-it dries in minutes! I live in Illinois where corrosion is not an issue. The '68 Cherokee that I had was an Ohio airplane before I brought it to Illinois, and there was N...

Voted. Definately knots. I had a Cherokee that was in MPH, and I didn't like it for the same reason spike stated-charts and approach plates. Van's uses MPH 'cuz the numbers look better. I am going to have to use what I'm used to, Knots.

Welcome! :) I have done the training kit that Van's offers, and I would highly recommend making that purchase to practice on. It's $32, and you can screw up, and not worry about that fact that you have just ruined a skin. I am probably going to do a second one to further tune some riveting skills. T...

One of the guys I work with has a $SET$ of Snap On torque wrench's, which he just told me I can borrow anytime. Good deal! I'll probably end up buying one, 'cuz I like to have my own stuff, but it's a nice offer anyway that'll get me by in a pinch. I haven't used the el cheapo Pittsburg, and don't p...

I LOVE grass runways! I learned to fly on an airport that had both, and everytime the wind favored the grass, it was a great day! Of course, my instructor made me practice crosswind landings the whole time. :(
