The spinner is for a Grumman Tiger and not part of the project. It's for sale too. The engine cowling and the fuel tank skins are on the top shelf. The fuselage skin is on the middle (or bottom shelf in the picture).
On the top shelf from left to right are wing ribs with lightening holes removed and painted with Veriprime. Under those are hardware packages for the beef-up spar kits from Van's. I put the hardware in the plastic boxes. Moving to the right is the fuselage spar carry-through bulkhead assembly painted with Veriprime. Against the back is an aluminum panel that's been painted with Veriprime. The canopy in inside two black plastic bags and on the right side are the wingtips.
The two pictures above are the top and bottom fuselage skins.

This prop flew on a RV3 for approx 350 hours and then was examined and refinished by a wood prop builder. I flew about 20 of those hours behind it. I removed the engine (O-320-E3D 150 hp) and installed an overhauled 160 hp version of this engine and at the same time bought a new prop to go with the "new" engine. The prop is ready for another "3".
This is the plane the prop flew on. Built in 1985 by Curt Bryant and now is flying in Australia.
The logbook for O-320-E3D engine that flew 370 hrs in RV3 above, and has 2200 hrs since new in 1977. Removed from a Piper.
More pictures are coming soon.....please check back.
