    The windshield is done. I’ve tried to post photos last night and this morning and for some reason they load then it throws up an error. This has been happening a lot lately. Sometimes I try it several times they all of a sudden the photo will load. Any ideas?

    I took your advice and painted the two down tubes. Now to get the windshield back in. Thanks again for the suggestion Dusty.

    I purchased an adapter from Teal for an RX-1 conversion. I installed that adapter and there is no doubt it was made with care and precision. Teal offered me other items to build my engine mount and electrical system. His prices were more than fair. I had trouble with my adapter fitting. Teal offered to send me another one immediately but took his personal time to help me find the problem which was extra casting on the ROTAX Flywheel causing clearance issues.
    This is the second attack on Teal I’ve witnessed from Greg on an open form. The last one Teal respectfully countered and Greg toned it way down.
    Greg, instead of batting your gums about Teals product how about you work on proving your own product and getting it out to people who can verify it’s worth to the marketplace. This Experimental business is full of blowhards claiming the next best thing. What we as Experimenters want is proof in product. Maybe you have some good products but we have not seen them and Teal as you can see from people’s testament has proven his and made a few good friends in the process. You might be the worlds best engineer Greg but talking mad crap about another mans product just seems like a real sorry business angle.

    I hope this Lexan is not directional. I would hate to waste a bunch of this Polycarbonate

    I’ve ran these on the Crazed Pilot Controller three times for extended periods and it seems to handle them well. This same controller runs two 48 head LED wing lights on my Zenith 701 with no problem. I have a hard time believing it will not handle two 6 head lights with 1/4 of the wire length. I could use a car flasher but they are heavy. If I’m wrong I burn up a relatively cheap controller. So far it seems to handle it. We shall see. I’m by no means an electrical guru. In fact I’m at the other end of the spectrum.

    Well the good thing about living in a populated area is you can find supplies. I could not find 3/32 but I found 1/16 Makrolon. It's for $56.00 a 4 x 8 sheet.

    Well Crap!! I got half way into fabricating the new windshield and figured out my Lexan was    1/32 instead of 1/16.
