Factory Build Assist

Hi folks. This is my first post but have been "lurking" around for some time. I have searched for the subject topic but have only seen it mentioned in passing. So here goes: Does anyone have or know someone who has and would be willing to share his experience with regards to JA factory build assistance?

The Zenith aircraft factory is a little over two hours from me so that was my first intro to STOL. Then last September I made the 2,800 mile round trip journey to Boise/Homedale, ID to take a taildragger lesson in the Kitfox SS-7 and tour the factory (which no longer does builder assist). A very memorable trip. It was way too fun. Next step is to visit the JA factory in a few months (which DOES do builder assist). I want to compress the "joy" of building firewall back into a shorter timespan as well as have ready access to someone who knows what they are doing -- which I do not!
