thanks clint you can't believe how simple it is to just put it together i have decided to cut the elevator crank off of the torque tube, there was a post on line that someone did that i really liked and am kind of copping it i can't remember his name but will get it and post the credit to him. having fun see you at mexico in september, my son and i will be going early to attend c.c 34 and finish the build of my corvair motor
Hi how did you make the bend for that z bend on the back of slats? On my break I will have to make the first 90 and then turn the sheet over to make the second bend and that will be against the first bend , not good
hi clint what wire did you use for your position lights? I think I'm going to use aveo powerburst, from a/s. I'm still not sure if it has to be used with shielded or regular. in there info sheet they suggest 20 ga but do not say shielded ????? What lights did you use thanks Ron
hi clint; ron zielke here. could you please sent me your home or cell to my personal email firstname.lastname@example.org would like to ask some questions but not on this form. And a good time to call. Thanks for your help.
Clint it looks like you got the riser table from Cleveland tool, did you mount the "c" frame to it and slide the hole assembly along your table to rivet the spars? on Your fuel tanks, did you have a drawing for them or just design them yourself? One last question did you drill both spar and cap together, and did you drill by hand or drill press. Your workmanship is really great. thanks Ron
