I spent Saturday building the elevator. I’m actually pretty happy that I got this done in one day.
I had some help in the garage tonight. Jes harnessed her inner Rosie.
After putting in her first few rivets, Jes said, that was easy. I want to make some art out of Aluminum. I don’t think she has checked out my log. This part already has about 20 hours in it. On the other hand, it’s finally done, for now…
Today the rest of my kit arrived. That is a lot of parts. We had to break it down just to get it out of the truck. Once out of the truck the pallet was too heavy to carry into my garage so we ended up taking apart the pallet on the sidewalk and hand carry
ing in each part. The guys at Sonex do a gret job at packing. It really is impressive. Phew that was a lot of work. Did I mention it was 95 out and so humid you could drink the air. Jes helped a lot! Even My girls got into the action. It may be a while before I can park my car in the garage again. I ran through the inventory for the boxes 1 of 6 and the pallet. So far it appears as if I have received 16 rather than 8 of each SNX-W15-06 and SNX-W15-07. Hard to complain about receiving too many parts. I’m going to wait and see if I just miss read the inventory list.
Inventory on the tail kit complete with Jessica’s help. I still have some organizing to do. There are a fair amount of rivets. Something to think about when I get the rest of the kit.It did bother me the hinges were folded. So long, I guess it was the only way to have them shipped. I did my best to straighten them out. 1 hour
Conway Trucking delivered the Sonex tail kit. Driver even placed the crate directly in my garage. Jes handled the delivery. One of the boxes was slightly damaged, Sonex did a great job packing. All of the parts were in good shape. We didn’t notice the damage until the plastic was removed. Check out the label that was damaged. Sigh…
When we opened the box nothing was damaged. Sonex did a great job packing. The plans were a sight to behold. I’m not sure what I was expecting, but wow. Also, it’s cold in Illinois. Heat is necessary, unless I wanted to make this a three season project.
