Thanks again guys. This originally started out as a project to get away from my steel fabricating past and to learn more about aluminum, metal shaping and rivet work, but the greatest reward has been all the great friends that I have made as the result of the many times someone has stepped up and offered to help. I want to take time to particularly thank a few guys, who it turns out are now great friends as well. Jim Hery and Per (Metalman Sweden) for the help on the tail section. Particularly Jim Hery for the countless hours he spent trying to teach me metal shaping methods on the tail and cowl sections, along with the patience I made him go thru. Bob Kolenda travelled many miles on many occasions to help with panel finishing and all the wiring and gauge installation. I am of the opinion that Bob can fix anything, as I witnessed him modify the insides of the 12v gas gauge to be able to show 6v. He also changed the face of the gauge. Finally, to Billy Jack, my new friend in Minnesota that taught me what I have learned regarding rivets, and Kent White, who's tapes and hands on training got me over the hump regarding aluminum gas welding. I am still concerned, but not afraid. I learned WAY more than I was expecting.

Thanks again, guys!
