  1. Thanks Marc, doesn’t get any easier than that. On inside cosmetics, it still has to be good enough so one doesn’t stay up nights obsessing about it. Lol. Peel ply is my friend.
  2. Here is my dilemma, I had a small slip with the multitool trimming the canard cutout on the fuselage. My issue is if i do the standard repair of one inch per layer, i will end up grinding way out into the good stuff, as this is in the corner where the f22 reinforcement layup is. See pics. Second opinions are appreciated.
  3. I do test stand wiring for a living so I second the idea of removing the old wiring and starting fresh. It will probably take No more time and you will have the piece of mind of a robust electrical system. Not to mention will know every aspect of it while you create the schematic.
  4. Keep checking the lodge, there have been cancelations.
  5. CP 25, page 5. For the spacing. CPs are just as important as the plans. I read and reread prior to every chapter build.

    H-250 Foam

    See CP 26 page 3 for confidence in the alternate material and save hassle and money.
  7. You actually have more control with the vibratory tool then the razor blade. Since it does all the work very little pressure is required. You can use your other hand as a guide to control the depth. As an added bonus, no possibility of slicing the dickens out of yourself.
  8. On those gear extrusions add press in steel bushings. McMaster Carr # 8491A725. Also i have a cad file of the ones we made if you need it.
  9. Correct me if I am wrong, but micro slurry foam to glass interfaces only, and not glass to glass.
  10. You could add a swingarm mechanism to the existing pedal assembly, or if your ambitious fab some new delux ones.
  11. Heard it as it happened on the tower freq. Good idea to install the warning system. High excitement coming into Oshkosh, easy to forget something.
  12. So let me get this straight! They are going to wait till there is enough interest. That's not how it works. Both you and I will just look for alternatives, as the build must go on without delay. If it was me I would stay up nights to cast a half dozen or so struts. We are building both so I have a raw LEZ NG strut just in case you want some dimensions prior to deciding which route you you will take.
  13. The tick marks aren’t in all four corners. All you need is x, y. I about lost my mind over it. Everything so far has turned out beautifully, much better then expected. I printed the templates on a plotter, they were pretty close, however some small scale adjustments might be necessary. Make sure to read all the CP’s for the deviations, changes.
  14. I am currently building to these plans. I was pleasantly surprised at the fit of my bulkheads and sides. I spent months obsessing over the accuracy. I too compared the available bl and wl measurements. We also have the plans for the Cozy 4, and in comparing the templates for the winglets they Match well. Finishing chapter 7 on the tandem.
