    I'm starting off with the engine. Lycoming O-235. I got the engine tore down, no major surprises inside, which was nice. I am going to try to post updates about once a week during this build.

    I got all steel parts cleaned up and measured, the cam and crank are a little under standard and will have to go out, everything will get NDT completed locally. I also inventoried and labeled all the parts for the tail kit from wag aero.

    If we time this right, I could be getting my Vag off the rotisserie around the time you plan on starting your fuselage; you are welcome to use it. I'd rather see it be used vs. just torn apart.
    Also, I've added a left side door to my Vag; I built a fixture to produce either produce/repair both the left & right side vagabond doors.

    Sounds good to me. So this week I fit and welded up the vertical fin and epoxy primed it. I also cleaned some more engine parts and primed and painted those. Got alot done so far. Waiting to hear back about crank and cam at Aircraft specialties.
