    Is this really a recent pic of Dago?
    I was under the impression that it was still in pieces and "on hold" indefinitely.

    That is an old picture from Hollister right before we were ready to paint it. It was taken away, repossessed, stripped to bare metal and taken apart. Now in storage around Fresno.

    I did want to speak to that after I realized I have some information that might shed some light on this.

    Brent let me know that as a result of the NTSB pilot briefing following the GG accident, the trim tab actuators are now replaced every year - not just inspected, but replaced. That being the case, the unpainted actuator covers are more-than-likely a result of this yearly replacement. Leaving them unfinished would allow for easier inspection of their integrity during race week, where time could become a critical component in making the next race (the quicker you find a problem, the quicker you can address it). I will try to verify this with Brent, but it seems to be a good reason to do leave them unfinished.

    Oh, and thanks again Will for the oil canning pictures... I'll be sure to show them to Brent.

    I wasn't able to visit long today (had to jet back to the house unexpectedly to take care of the wife unit), but I'll be visiting again next week. It's been a long day, so I'll have to save the text update for tomorrow. Here are a few pics for your viewing pleasure

    If you have the original boxes for the gear, I'd stuff back in the box, then put those boxes into a single box with some bubble wrap and I think it will be good. This is the one reason I hold onto the original boxes.

    If you don't have the original boxes, bubble wrap the hell out of stuff.

    What is with the yellow stripe on the exit door? Dago's exit door was yellow in that area to match the band on the fuselage. If this door was a copy of Dagos that came from RR3, it would be silver. That yellow looks very close to the yellow used on Dago making me think this IS the Dago door that was mostly repainted, but why leave the stripe?

    That is the door from RR3. The yellow band is so they can see the doors position more easy.

    Oh, got it. That makes sense. I'd just think they would have painted it a matching color, but I guess if you are looking through binoculars yellow might stand out better than other colors (I'd think they would have done something like silver or white)
