Frank, What is the weight of that nice wing tank? Is it a rivet and seal job?  I know you have 15-20lbs of headroom on weight with the 3 cylinder so this was a nice choice.

Again your workmanship is benchmark quality something to inspire all builders.

One of the best examples of a Legal Eagle I have seen so far. Great job Frank.
Hope to see it at EAA this year, It's sure to draw a crowd. I'm torn between building an Ultracruiser
or a Legal Eagle with the Scarlett engine, You may have put me over the edge.
