    Got my oil breather system all finished up today just a bit of bending .035 aluminum tube.  Took a minute to look around and realized not much left to do under the hood.

    For those construction boys out there, progress report is the areas that are still white get stone but didn't get that on before it froze hard that's OK May have to shelter it for a week or wait till March, finished insulating yesterday and flipped the heat on. Enjoy the photos. Might work on the Kitfox today.

    The way that shop looks I bet you could just build a new one that matches. It would be a good Lesson on welding.

  20. TJay added a post in a topic INSTALLING HOERNER WING TIPS (HOW?)   


    Yeah they take a bit of time consuming work to get fit. But they are an option. You have to cut the front apart glue and glass it back together. I set these flush with the top of the capstrip. And they are not removable because I ran fabric and tape about an inch onto them.

  23. TJay added a post in a topic Recoating the 582 Exhaust   

    I have had really good luck with this stuff. Trick is spray on a few light coats let dry for a few hrs then take a small propane torch and run the flame over every inch and watch the paint bake on. Works way better than grill paint. I asked the local powder coater he said powder coat melts at 400 degrees so every time I start the engine the paint would melt and run off. It really never bothered me taking the exhaust off to paint it because it gives me a reason to check the joints and re antisieze  them.

    Seat construction
    Why is it when guys carve seat foam they build up the sides with small triangle pieces of foam?
    I have my fabric and my confoam is ordered so just starting to brainstorm.
