And she is Back!!! After spending two great days with the inspector, today we finally got to take er into the air again, it’s been 10months and 24 days since I last flew my plane……. And now my first flight was with the Inspector Honza Ptáček! He did a fantastic job going through all the controls and check to get it back into service, 2 ton wing load test, re measure re balance…… but the result is worth it!!! What a joy to be back!
Thank u to Martin Koči, for amaizing work on all the carbon fixing, Per-Erik Olofsson for spending the whole last week with me working hard like hell to get everything installed tuned and set to fly, #edgeperformance for the incredible injection kit system! Radek &Monika for helping with all support here well,the whole team at #pureflight for providing so much support with workspace, parts etc. and of course my wife n kids for waiting for me patiently…….. and anyone else I missed, it was a very touching day for me! Tomorrow Perra and I load up the plain and fly her back home :-)))

Welcome back 👍

Great lookin plane there!

Done and Done:-)
Late tonight we finally finished the plane!! Feels soooo good! Yesterday we ran the engine for another almost two hours mapping it out all all RPM’s and wow it runs sooo nicely now! Also adjust the prop and then ran a full service in it with new spark plugs oil etc. then today we fitted the whole nose and installed the new Naca for fresh ram air:-)well it all turned out really great 👍. Tomorrow we will put it together at the airport and have the inspector fly it in:-) so hold your thumbs so we can fly we home:)-

After more than 10 months we are finally getting there! A huge thanks to Per-Erik for coming with me and helping me get the engine running! And simply finish putting together everything!! Great to have experienced help with Simone else who can double check everything….. and just plain fun!! Finished the beetle last week, then straight on down to Czech on Monday and worked really hard all week, then finally, last night with “Rune” from #edgeperformance helped us getting the engine running!!! Yaahoooo Now to do the final mapping to get it happy at all RPMs! Really fun sitting in the plain and mapping an engine with a computer:-) really cool….. also interesting how smooth the engine runs now!

Aaaaaallrriiighhttt:-)))
Torbjörn Hugg and Liam:-) thanks 🙏 sooo much for helping bring my ideas into reality. I had this idea of Laminating some nice Local Birch and a Redwood and then making arm rests/door handle combi for the project……. Torbjörn H was up to the task (he is a woodworking teacher both JN Sveg and Lillhärdal) well he does amazing local wood work and laminated up and built these in like record time! Thank you cause I absolutely Love them. Liam and I then lacquered sanded and lacquered some more till they were just stunning:-) I will do a more elaborate post on how I made these door cards but man, what a lot of work…….Totally worth it…….. and I have to re-do the right Plaid lay up as u can see I totally missed and got a dip in the wrong spot:-( Anna Carin sewed 🧵 them up for me and I fitted it and glued it all together! And the Focal Sound from #bilstereohörna is Simply mind blowing!!! Soooo Crazy!! Liam was a total champ and helped insulate the doors and then put everything together…… suuuuper fun working with my son, just feels great 👍 P.S. yes I still have a few little details like put the door handles on etc. but just NEEDED! To show this, so stoked when something turns out even better than one imagines:-)

Looks great!

Clean!!! Bra jobbat 👏

Snyggt!!

Det räcker inte för att den skall bli Plaid !

All about the Music:-)🎶 The doors are the last thing to really build! Pär-Erik Olofsson has really started to help me quite a lot actually! So we had to build new door stops that were hollow so we could get a speaker cable into the doors:-) none of that in the 50’s Another nice copper touch:-) plus of course a lovely music note on the Stereo Volume knob and then what an amazing amount of dinking around, first double laminated new door cards then 18 silly washers bent lightly and hot glued, then All is pre cut and pre drilled and then finally fabric over all that in two layers.I think it will be worth it in the end:-) and Sooo close to the End of the build it is:-) ...
