  1. If that’s the fin going up to the vertical stab, you can either buy a fibreglass one from LASAR, or I can sell you the aluminum one is just removed to have that speed mod installed.
  2. There was a gentleman in Canada (Calgary) that had one for sale on the Buy/Sell pages a couple months ago. Not sure if he still has it or not.
  3. And can’t even ship to a post office in Montana, fly down and pick it up because the border is closed. Guess I’ll have to wait.
  4. Won’t ship to Canada. Boo
  5. FWIW, my AME told me you’re using the boost pump to “make sure you’re flooded”. Sounds crazy, but his theory is that you now know what you’re dealing with for certain, and won’t do any damage.
  6. This has been the ONLY way I have been able to consistently start my engine after it has ran for any period of time. Taxi from hangar to fuel pump.... need to do a flood start. Fly for 3 hours, shit down for lunch, need to do a flood start. I’ve seen Don Maxwells YouTube and it doesn’t work for me. Tried several other ways to no avail. I just stick with this procedure and 7-8 blades max it’s fired up.
  7. Probably should have taken more before photos, but halfway through the tail root fairing, after the tail root horizontal fairing and cowl mod were installed. Up next, the hinge covers, aileron and flap gap seals.
  8. I can attest to this. I'm having a structures buddy put mine on, while he's on furlough. He was originally going to charge me an hour to install over top, but decided to make it look better and go the sandwich and rivet route. He's into it for roughly 4 hours now, and called it quits for the day to get different bucking bars. Call it 4.5-5 hours total install. Hopefully he picks up the average time on the other 5 mods....
  9. Normally, you pay a little extra for that. In this case, he's gonna pay a lot.
  10. Well, 4 1/3 Gallons anyways.
  11. Thanks for this. I was confused by the 500 suggestion. Looking forward to the F being certified.
  12. Two types of foam come to mind: - Polyurethane - Polystyrene If you're in an oil based area, look up companies that make pigs (insert your worst Deliverance joke here). For those who don't know, they're basically a rubber plug that is put into a pipe, and with pressure, are sent through the line to clean it out. They are typically made out of solid polyurethane, and one could be cut in half and formed to fit your cowl openings. use whatever you'd like to cover the outside once said fit has been completed. Polystyrene is more of a rigid insulation foam. We have it come in 2x8' sheets here, and our civil contractors use it to create frost boxes under shallow buried utilities (for those of you down south, "shallow" up here is less than 9 feet of bury... our frost gets down that low and freezes pipes in the winter if its buried less than that). It is somewhat brittle, but you can use an exacto knife and cut out the precise shape fairly easily. Once again, cover with what you prefer.
  13. Wait. Got it: https://www.yumpu.com/en/document/read/31072882/wax-job-with-pictpdf-cafe-foundation
