First time I have posted in this thread... the story begins with "Every journey begins with a single step". I purchased the plans to the VP1 last year and much of the plywood and Sitka Spruce over the Summer. Over the past two weekends I have used T88 epoxy gluing together the cores to F3 and F4. Although I have seen many VP projects starting on various components I confess I am starting on the first pages of the plans. Here are pictures of the cores of F3 and F4.
Got far enough on my electrical diagrams (and made it through the layoffs) so I ordered a pile of electrical equipment--wire, terminals, connectors, fuse blocks, empty battery cases, tools, etc. I can start laying in things like the power distribution system and a bit of the known wiring while I triple-check my "parts to buy to build my engine" list. Monday should be my first day out in the shop in a few weeks (finally!). The layoffs had me in a funk for a while so I stuck to doing computer work like wiring diagrams. Still need to finish them and figure out my routing so I can drill spar penetrations...
