Fuselage Parts List
If you're like me, you spend way to much time just looking for parts. I went down to Lowes Aircraft and Lumber Supply and bought several large Rubbermaid containers and put each sub kit into a separate container. Then I OCR'd the RV-9A Fuselage parts list into the web page below. Then all I have to do is use the Internet Browsers search feature to locate the part I'm looking for. I hear that the RV-7/7A parts list is very similiar. To get your own copy of this parts list in excel format, just click here. Enjoy!
