  1. Hello all. I'm in the process of building a Long EZ here in S Florida. Wings have been completed and moving on to the Canard and Main Spar. It turns out, Aircraft Spruce stopped selling the 3" UNI tape I had used for the wing spar caps. After many, many calls and frustration, it seems that they have no plans to re-stock this tape and have replaced it with another version. AS won't put me in touch with the supplier to ask any technical questions and those directed at customer service have been met with a "this new tape seems to be very similar" kind of attitude. This is not good enough for me. Wick's seems to still sell the old stuff but it's $4.42/YD. I previously purchased my 3" tape from AS at $2.45/yd. After my continued calls, AS finally put out a YouTube video from the supplier but none of my questions were answered in it. The video focuses on the locking thread. All I can tell from the videos is that this new product appears to have 35 strands and the older stuff had/has 27 strands. 1. Does anyone have information on where this stuff is produced and how I can get a hold of some without the 2x price increase Wick's is charging? 2. Is there any literature /information about how this new material compares to the older version of tape? 3. Has anyone used the newer tape as a replacement as if so, what are your thoughts?

  2. Selling my Long EZ, N757T S/N 1854L. It's IFR equipped, and a really well-done build by Shannon Stewart from IL. I'm the third owner. Fresh inspection, newly overhauled IO-360, $70,000 Full details HERE.
  3. 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
  4. I was quoted $1,700 for Hull insurance on my Long EZ. This is for $38,00 in Hull insurance only. Is this in the ball park of what other EZs are being insured for?
  5. 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?
