    If I was closer I would weld it it up for you no problem . I'm sure there's a local weld shop in your area that can knock it out quick . 
    Ed if you don't have a muffler on your plane now putting glass packs should give you a little boost in performance. Back pressure helps a little and you might have to readjust your carb .

    Send me your number again . I got a new phone and lost some contacts . I'm always at webster swap meet and guys are getting crazy now with the gadgets and there bikes . Could be something to definitely look into doing.

    Man thats cool ! I'm not really into gadgets and tech stuff but I might have to get one . I can get the Top gun soundtrack playing and pretend I'm in a f-14 hahaaa . Who wants to be my Iceman ? Robb can you make me a speedo tach type deal for my motorcycle or is that something that can't be done ? I ride a bare bones Kawasaki bobber no front brake and suicide shift . It's done up old school and the tank was pinstriped by my buddy .  I could figure out somewhere to hide if haha . Om enough non airplane talk I got to excited over electronics for once .

    Never hurts to have a mechanical pump running full time and use the electric as backup

    I have a bunch of Reno air race pictures
    I have hundreds if not thousands of Reno air race pictures from 1960's to around 2008. I picked them up from a widow who's husband was a pit chief or what not . There's pictures of Bob Hoover with his bright yellow P-51 along with other aircraft and pilots stemming about 40 years . My question is are these worth anything to sell ? I picked through and pretty much got what I want . Just wondering about original aviation photos and if they are worth listing for sale . Edmo chime in and give me that pearl of wisdom .

    I am planning on building myself a new nose gear . Once I do one I can duplicate them all day . Mine has a little lean in it from the previous owner.

    Broke down and bought the diy smart saw plans
    Well I couldn't resist after see akflyer post about it. I have a laptop to use and almost everything to build it . Hopefully this thing works and I can build some cool stuff. I was talking to my brother and also was wondering if it would do carbon fiber ?
