    Fuel tank markings/ inspection soon
    I submitted my paperwork to the DAR today. I’m still finishing up some little stuff. One thing is the fuel tank markings. Can you guys show me how you marked the root of your wings with the level of fuel in the tank? Just want some ideas. Photos attached.

    I went through the same thing with my girls. I raised them without their mother being around. I miss them when they were small. I was not their friend for a good portion of their teenage years. They have grown into great people so I guess I did alright.

    Meeting other Avidfoxflyers
    I had the pleasure of meeting and hanging out with The Machinist and Shipl14 at our Treeport EAA Chapter Fly-in. Both of these guys (and Shipl14’s wife too) lent a hand during the fly-in with set up and tear down. The Machinist flew his Avid in.  Shipl14 followed me back to my hanger after the Fly-in and spent some time looking over the Mountian Avid. It was a great time and It’s always fun connectioning with other Avidfoxflyers. Thanks for coming out Guys!!

    Thank you Fred. I called a friend today that works with stuff like this and he said it should be no problem. Thank you for the information. I like the wood idea as a jig / spacing tool.

    Thank you Fred. Could you give me an idea on what works best or what method you used for alignment before gluing?

    Is it ok to bring my buddy to the Avid Camp? He’s a good guy and has helped me with a lot of Airplane moving and hauling. He also lets me fly my Avid off of him private airport.

    That’s a good idea. What did you use for the cement?

    Fixing the cowl
    I had a little mishap while moving all my Avid stuff to the Airport. My top cowling got smashed. I took it out to a guy and he reglassed one edge and fixed a spot on the bottom cowl. One of the fasteners up front had been drilled to close to the edge and split out so I had him build up that area. When I went to pick it up I could see that when he reshaped it he took to much off. Now I’m back to where I was before. I hate the body work stuff. I’m just not good at it.
