Work has resumed/continued on Tango-Lima-Seven-Eight following our return from vacation. The final element for the dash has been installed, a fuel gage. The matching sending unit is installed in the tank and has been shown to be working.

We had a minor complication in the Dacron wrap on the ailerons. When shrunk, the ailerons were warped by the tension, this caused them to move poorly and needed repaired.

We still need to complete the cowling over the engine, the windshield, and the paint.
we will start the ground testing this weekend, but will likely wait for the rest of the components to be complete before flight testing starts.
