iPhoto is a piece of crap - it ate three days of pictures. However today I worked on the steps and removing the baggage compartment floor. Originally I had thought I wouldn't need steps, because RV-6A's I've seen didn't seem too high and Van's called the steps optional. However, looking at the gear made me do some math and on the RV-7A the plane is much higher. 28" from ground to wing trailing edge when measured at the fuse. I could barely make that step, and most others certainly could not. So I ordered the step kits and started the painful process of installing them. Installation would have been easy if I did it before the floors were in. Ugh.
