Gfry added a topic in Technical tasksLexan or MaragardHi All,
So whenever you talk about clear doors, everyone says Lexan. Lexan is just a brand of polycarb and pretty cheap as well. However Margard is part of the Lexan product line which is a lot more expensive and much more scratch resistance. Surely a more scratch resistant product would be better?
Has anyone here any experience with using Margard instead of standard Lexan?

I am looking for door latches and handles for my Avid MK IV. Currently it only has a handle on the port side door which is from a house door! and the latches on both sides are worn and barley catch.
I am in the UK, but happy to pay for international shipping.

Gfry added a topic in Introduce yourselfUK NewbieHi All,
So I decided to buy bargain of an Avid MKIV.
It has a high hour 582 bluetop (255 hours). Compressions and bearings are all good so I am not overly worried....especially as I paid less than $6k for it. It is ultra different to flying Cherokees 6's which I am used to....but it is massively cheaper for simply burning holes in the sky just for the fun of it.
It used to be a tail dragger but some monster converted to a nose pusher. A few things I want to do it:
1) Convert it back to tail dragger. I have seen some undercarriage options from Airdale, but they don't respond to email or answer the phone. Does anyone know if they are still in business? or anywhere else I can get taildragger kit from?
2) I want to replace the doors the Perspex or whatever it is called these days. Again anyone know where I can buy a set from?
