    Well guys i ended up buyin this set of floats for the KF. Made a hell of a "GOOD TRADE" like they say on dancing with wolves. Even tho they need a few small repairs like u c in pic.  Hahahaaaaaa think they rigged for a j2 or Tcraft A now, the guy i got them from is an AP for Everts here and said he would help me install them when the tie comes, course ill get the rigging done asap, wont b flying on them that soon, but least they b ready for a model 1-4 mounting.  May even let my buddy borrow them for a bit that way i can learn to fly floats.  He proably try and buy them from me. Hahahahahaaaaa

    Yeppers i did the samething with rivets and hysol glue, when the glue was dry i took a pair of vicegrip pliers, ground the inside edge of jaw smooth, and squashed the end of the rivet into a flat head, now the top and bottom of the rivet look the same instead of haveing the extra of the rivit sticking up/down pased the surface of flaperon.

    Very Very nice!!! And i agree with Jim on the extended holesaw, have to ask y the reason for the change? Makin the tube thicker wall, does that up the gross weight? I also c u redid the bar over ur head for room, man i wish i would have done that when had the chance, least im only 5'5",145 but still b nice.

    Like a GOOD friend on here told me, KISS, easy to get caught up on the goodies out there, i did the same on goodies in the begining, but heck man just give that yellow girl a GOOD tuneup, keep it running its best, keep it clean, best bang for ur buck is lighten it up, (i killed 31lbs off on my first KF from previous owner) , and reliable, and shove as much gas as u can thro her. Far as tires those r up to the pilot and what he thinks he can or cant do with them, but ill bet those desser smooth 8.50x6 tires work most places and the not eat up airspeed.  
    But dont forget just my opinion, im still in training, hahahahahahaaaaaaaa
    Randy, if u have to choise, i say get off short, i can enjoy the longer trip a little longer in the air.  Hahahahaaaaaa

Im usually building something odd here, and next thing u know someone has to have it. Hahahahaaaa i have been wanting a side by side but holy crapola they r proud of them. So unless i strike it rich in gold ill continue to build. Hahahahaaaa

    On my bluefox #0038 I used a stock univar supercub 3 leaf spring, but i left one spring out, so just used two, so far seams to work great, got it for $50 at a hanger cleaning sale. And it was curved correct for the tailwheel axle to sit right,
