Hi Andrew, 

I think this is the area you are referring to, and if so, this is a piece that I fabricated and put in that area, easy to make and attach. I have a 750, but it looks like it's the same set up as yours, and Im sure I'll gain enough speed to keep with you now.

Sweet. Thanks for the reply and nice pics. I will pass that along to a buddy thats building a 750 also.

I'm wondering if anyone has been brave enough to build some glass parts. Trust me, I dont want to go that route if i can clean it up with some alum. I have enough glass sanding ahead of me with the fairings!

Check out what this 801 builder did for his horizontal gap. Starts about 2:50 into the video.

the fairing strip slips under the fuse skin at the front, and is held in place with a screw in the middle and at the back horiz stab mnt.

Thanks all for the ideas. I decided to bite the bullet and clean it up with some more glass work.

Check out my page for more pics.

Holy Crap!!! That is NICE!!!



Very Nice Andrew.   Looks like you moved the "bar" some.
