MAN !!! It is a helluva job to get the Rotax 618 silencer to fit inside the cowl, without reducing the length thereof. The length is critical for the correct performance, but a plan will show itself :roll: :roll:

When I got this project someone had already built and covered the wings, the fabric work was not exactly to our standard. I at first thought to try and salvage the fabric by "doctoring" it , however today I noticed that the top skin was joined spanwise just behind the glass fibre leading edge :shock: :shock: :shock:
Mense !!! I am sure the chap that did this did not realise what he was doing :!: After opening the wings..........errrmm... taking the fabric off I was glad to have done this, there are a couple of mistakes that need attention.
Now I will have some peace of mind when they are finally covered and painted.

Hans, die tenke lyk OK, maar dit se nie hulle is OK, ek gaan hulle met petrol volmaak en met so 0,5 bar druk toets. Wat stel jy voor ?
