Peter Bain's Whisper taildragger Express

Here is a pic of Peter's Whisper just prior to it's road trip to George. Peter is having a Jabiru 6 cylinder engine installed. Happily the trip went well and Peter's baby is now in the tender care of the Shadowlite team. See you in the sky soon Peter!

Their progress looks impressive. On the last picture showing the horizontal stab, it looks as if they cut and fit the elevators before they micro finished the surface. Is this the case?
