Hey Everyone, Long time listener, first time caller. I have been working on my modified Long Ez for the last 7+ years. I call it the Garaggio Ez, you can read about why on my blog. It has blended winglets, an O-360, AFP injection, P-Mags, Dual Garmin G3X touch, custom cowl, armpit cooling scoops, naca belly induction air scoop, Todds Canopy oversized canopy, and many more mods. You can see more about it on my blog as well. Yesterday was a big day for the Garaggio EZ as it was the first time I saw it all put together wearing its "dress whites." I plan to fly in primer, and as such it still has some ugly spots, but I figure no use painting a "prototype." Here are a few photos and you can find more on my blog. garaggio.wordpress.com/chronology
Years ago I read a suggestion somewhere, that instead of building a modern Long EZ, it might be easier to build a tandem Cozy MkIV and get all the benefits of the upgraded designs. Has this ever been done? I see discussion all the time of builders and dreamers who want to make this longer, or that wider, etc. and of course the never ending discussions of a modern Long EZ with everything that was learned from the CP's, Newsletters, Cozy Mk IV, and Berkut advancements all built in. It does seem intuitive that narrowing a MkIV makes more sense that enlarging and modifying a Long EZ. Anything like that ever happened?
