Man, I wish Midwest Panel Builders was around when I was planning my wiring and panel.  They do an amazing job.  So plug-and-play.  My Steinair.... Not so much...

I forgot to mention in my last post that for SB #17, we did not have to change the rivets as they were the correct stainless steel rivets.  I lucked out and have a properly made elevator stop.

Went down to Oklahoma for the sign-off, but we weren't able to get completely to engine start, which the DAR wants to see.  Close, but no cigar.

The good news is that I won't have to go down again for the sign-off, though he started off from that position.  I changed his mind... Whew...

Can't say I was thrilled to be flying on an airliner these days.  My mask setup is pretty good though.  ASTM Level 2 surgical mask is actually better filtration than an N95 mask and much easier to breathe through.  To get the true protection though, you need to seal the edge gaps and that's what the rubber bands are for.  Works great!

Looked even better in person!

My 2020 Sling 4 shares the hanger with this sweet 1956 Cessna 172.

The panel all lit up.  COM radios work!

Installing the wing fairings.  With a review of the remaining tasks, it looks like about a week to engine start.
