just about done with the interior, thought I would post a few photos of the progress....Disregard the dirty rear cargo floor, it is covered with dust and I didnt feel like cleaning it for the photo shoot. *note the rear window to view the elevator control linkage for preflight*

Looking great...
Were the pistons for the doors included in the kit or an extra?

Looks great

The pictures look great.  I like the windows you installed on the sides behind the seats.  I too am curious about the door pistons.  Did you do something different for the fuel header or just not installed it yet?

The door pistons are not included in the kit. They were a pretty big project and we ended up making special brackets for them with our sheet metal break. They work great though and from the closed position a slight pull on the door will swing the door all the way up to their stops which is just about an inch shy of hitting the underside of the wing.


Fuel header tank is not in yet. That is todays project, the interior trim where the header tank will go is not secured so we can modify it as needed. We opted for the larger header tank with the fuel sight guage on it.

It is hard to tell by the photo but the interior is actually a tweed like material. It is similiar to the material the seats are made of

I just picked up my pistons at Wahalla. {free}   :D
Ordered some boat window open/close locks.  Will get some pics for everyone soon.
My fiberglass friend built me some door latchs much better than the single mount supplied.

Can you tell me anything more about the pistons.  In particular, how long is the stroke?
