    TJ, you airplane is beautiful, hey what are the dimensions of your instrument panel? does it have a lip on the bottom to connect to tabs?

    so just to make sure i'm imagining this correctly. When you speak of the benifit of metal on metal, do you mean how the two L brackets are connected on either side of the hangars by rivets? The metel isnt actually touching but connected by the rivet?

    I think im going to rehab the 532 and get it in the air before I swap the motor. I do have that nose tank, let me think on it. I need to get to work on this airplane. Thank You!

    hey guys sorry for the absence, i've been busy in college, I'm in an aviation program in Bend Oregon, currently working on my ppl. getting close now.  I've been working on the kitfox at a snails pace, I dont really have the coin to just buy a new motor yet. Ive been thinking about all my options to re power it.  im in the process of putting in new lexan. I took out the header tank and i'm going to add a new one behind the seat, I really had to do it to get more leg room. i've started working on a new instrument  panel does anyone have dimensions for a panel to go into a model 1? i've cut out a bunch of slightly different shapes that could work. unfortunately i have to move the plane because the storage unit people don't like me working on it. Around here in Bend Oregon its a nightmare to find a hangar or even space. I want to put a yamaha engine on it, i cant afford a 912, atleast not right now. It would be hard to get a motor mount too from what I have heard. Where I live its nothing but tree's. I need another wing tank too. . lots of work this winter.

    EDMO, how did you change the fork end to a rod end? do the just screw into the bottom of the elevator tube? what size, I have a Model 1. My Manual calls for an AN23-9 bolt, would you still use this bolt with a rod end?

    are your tanks alluminum? are they the fuel resistant ones? i have one 9ngallon alluminum tank on one side and storage on the other. Ill probably replace both. I yanked the nosetank. the cockpit smells like fuel so im redoing the fuel system.

    ok so im having the sone trouble with thr seat pan rubbing the control surfaces. I read about it in another forrum that listed some sugestions such as straps and netting. I also notice some of the tubes are bent but i read thats normal. what do you guys think?

    ahh so no glue but revet it, sounds like a good temporary sotution untill the re cover job. im so tempted to take the fabric off but I cant bring myself to do it because its in really great condition.
