I just thought it would be as simple as going to (AS) and picking a couple of them up on their website. I picked up a pair or 42” trike skis from a guy in north pole ( fiberglass ) . The ss fittings are on the skis but i need 4 more for the fuselage attach points. I already picked up th new bolts when i put on the shock monster suspension. Cant wait to put the skis on. They are half the weight as my 29s and with density altitude at -4k alot of days around here right now, flying should be pretty good
Jim, $450 for two tanks, $70 shipping to Alaska was included in the price. When i finish the underside, I’ll post some pics. He sent me two brass fittings and i drilled and tapped and jb welded them in.
Tony does an excellent job with the ShockMonsters. Picked me up some for mine and I’ll never go back to conventional gear or if i do get a Kitfox in the future that doesn’t have these on.....they’ll be the first thing i replace. Tony was great to work with and help out with indexing the axles and mounting plates for the disc brake upgrade i did at the same time. Two thumbs up ! Just call me no bounce from now on.
Jim, since i didnt get a build manual with this plane and am not familiar with the wing construction, is the tank structural? Its riveted, bolted and epoxied . Hoping i can get it out without replacing one of the ribs.
