For what it is worth I made these printouts in Autocad. I chose to go around the trailing edge on my model one kitfox. I included two files, one with the notch and one without. I found that each ribtail had to be fitted seperately, mainly because making the 90 degree bend perfect is difficult ( I think thats why atleast). I can also send the dxf file if you choose to send it to a Waterjet. let me know if ayone see's a problem with these. I havent put them in yet.

ribtail hangar pdf 2.pdf Maybe this helps someone, I chose to go around the trailing edge. One file has the notch in it and the other file does not. The end leaves material to be fitted to each ribtail, I found that each ribtail must be fitted seperately mainly because making the 90 degree bend perfectly is difficult.
sorry I mean the sound protection material or heat resistant fabric.I think mine had some sort of fiberglass cloth material, I know some people use aluminum tape. My firewall has some black stuff sprayed on, what is that stuff?
Thanks for the advice. I really don't plan on changing the gear right now. I did the mock up quick and put those lines in there just for a visual. Although the measurements are correct. If I were going to attempt this I would try to put shocks in there. I dont enderstand how they get the leg tubes to flatten out at the end to fit inside the bracket? Thanks for the concearn regarding the landing gear. I was just messing around though. With you guys advice maybe I can make something look right on paper atleast before I ever try to weld anything.
