12-24 Update: Well, belly is 80 percent done now! My knees and back are so happy! One more piece to finish the aft end of the cockpit. Then cut a couple access panels in the belly. All access panels on the sides are workable and pretty well finished! Merry Christmas to all and to all a good nite. Make sure you give thanks for being so blessed in our country!

12-28 Update: Wow! Access panel in belly pan finished today! My back hurts! But isn't that hole beautiful!
12-31 Update: I just finished the last belly panel at the back passenger cockpit! I know you can't see all the work but I have about 15 hours in this! Resting right now then install! VHF Antenna was installed off center slightly to aid in more room for control yoke and tubing! Enjoy!!!!
All panels finish to back cockpit! Now asking Phil Witt (metal mister) to assist me with transion from back cockpit to curve in fuselage
