    Varieze Wing attach plates and nose gear bushings

    Marc, I really appreciate this...I sent the photos
  7. I need someone that has built a varieze that would be willing to chat with me on the phone and take a look at some pictures of my wing attach plates...the portion that is attached to the spar I would like to understand how these are joined together and discuss a few things that I am seeing on mine ''I also have some play left and right as well as up and down at the nose gear bushing...looking for a resolution to this while I am working on some fiberglass repairs under the nose thanks James

    varieze long ez hybrid question

    He sent some pictures ..looks like a full blown long Ez to me...not sure where the vari came into it Previously flying...but no data plate, no logs, been stripped ..paint as well as the gauges etc...very long time since the o-200 has ran or it has flown...looks like a major project..an in person look would for sure be a better evaluation since pictures are never a good view..but at least a start

    Kent Ashton

    A buddy of mine called me today and asked me about when I lived in Concord NC did I ever hear of a guy named Kent Ashton, that built his own long ez....I told him, in fact I do know Kent and that he is a great guy and about the flight he took me on and the amazing projects in his basement workshop...followed up by a why??? he then tells me our friend Kent is in the Popular Mechanics that he just received...I need to run out and buy a copy.... on top of being a very talented builder, an overall great guy and friend to other builders he is now world famous :-) I just wanted to say congratulations to Kent and look forward to reading the article
