I have been at a stand still trying to figure what to do next to get the build ready for first start. So basically I'm giving it to them as is with a handful of other small tasks done over the next week. Then I will see what's needs to be done after engine testing.

One of the things was to see if it stands for transport to the shop.

Here she is: Spitfire has legs and the are beautiful!

It's already sitting low and still has come down some. Crazy low!

One thing I'm happy about is I did not bother treating the brake calipers. You cant see them.
