    I built one from their plans, only out of fiberglass, for my 3300 and it works great, mounted over the plenum so the oil runs back. Have my original catch bottle down stream that just catches mostly only moisture now.  I need to make one for the Avid

    20-22 gauge grounded at the switch end only and while you are at it you may want to change the route away from any radio related wires.

    Same here with Diana Cream, white undercoat is only recommended for a few colors for Polytone.

    An inspection ring and cover just forward of the bolts location works well for me.  You can leave the fabric uncut until you need to get into there if you like.

    1/4" X  11/2" pine lattes glued to the backside of the tube and then covered with fabric is what I used for my "Bush Gear" to fair them. Worked great and it is light. It will not add much to the structure although.

    I think the same Jim if you look at the picture in the trailer it is easy to see.

    Have you checked for head leaks using soapy spray and turn the engine over or better yet a differential compression checker?

    Blood Pressure
    I have been searching for a way to bring down borderline bp for a while now and stumbled on something that worked to lower my bp 20-30 points in days.  I know it sounds like I am selling something or pitching something, I'm not.  I eliminated grains, sugars and potatoes from my diet and the bp dropped.  Dont know if it will work for everyone but worked for me without any medication.  We are eating a lot of pinto beans in place of the potatoes.

    Hooked up the commitlift dual USB charger today. No noise but in a friends plane he is getting noise but I suspect it is going to be a ground fault some where.  More to come when I get it in the air and give it a real test.

    Price seems really high to me, does it have the engine?  When I bought my MK IV kit it came with a new 912 Rotax and I paid about the same as what you are talking.  By the time you complete that kit you can expect to have $14,000 rapped up in it and and some years of missed flying. As mentioned you could be flying a 582 powered Fox or Avid yet this spring for the same or less momey.  Don't get me wrong I love building and may build another plane someday but if you want to fly and go out and have some fun now.  Ok that's my two cents worth.  Welcome a board this is a great group that has a wealth of information what ever you decide.

  15. wypaul added a post in a topic DAR appointment   

    The reason the Avid and any other kit that has went out of business is not on the approved list is the manufacturer must apply to be on the list.  In other words there is no path to get on the list without the manufacture doing the necessary paperwork to be approved. 
    My DAR had me complete the form before he came down to do the inspection.  I sugggest that you do the same, it will save you at least an hour of time with the DAR and you are the one that is required to fill out the form and sign it anyway.  It really is pretty simple once you get into the  swing of it.
    the 3rd will be here before you know it that is exciting, it's getting close to that big day now!
