ok so I had this happen twice today in a 172, the 1st time the engine hiccuped when I gave it full throttle on takeoff and the second time I had it happen on a touch and go, again after giving it full throttle the motor seemed to bog for a second. I was thinking maybe I jammed the throttle in too quickly? I was taught to do a ground lean where I live and I dont think It was too lean. The 1st time I taxied back and did a run up to full power and it didnt do it. Anybody seen similar problems?
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.
This would be 55 inches wide at the Hubs. I'm messing around and contemplating trying to build something, Or atleast have someone weld it for me. I would put shocks in there. Still haven't designed the cabine part yet.
This program called sketchup is so easy and intuitive to use. This is the ribtail reinforcement that I made in there. Im stll going to add the extra metel for the 90 degree bend but i 1st need to measure the airplane to see where it should start. It is upside down in the picture, the way I lofted it made it easier that way.
