    We got one wing painted and the other one is coming along as well. We ended up redoing all of the inspection hole grommets because of the amount of glue and bubbles that were there to start with.

    That is interesting. I thought they were going for an STC on 12s too. Would the rear seat in a 12 be considered 2 passenger seats or just one?

    Is there any news on the O-320 18 STC?
