    Well another mining season is well under way here. Lots of dirt to move, and the miner next to me (we r mining up to each others property line found the top of an old mining drift id guess 90-100ft underground. Drift is about 5’tall 5’-6’ wide at bottom.  Looks like part of the drift going back into the hill on my side of property line mayb still open to get into later for some cool pic!!!!

    Man that i lookin realy good!!! I like the split in the upper have like that, thats my only complaint about the top of cowl on my bluefox, ive thought about cuttin it there so easy to deal with and not so likely to scratch windsheild.

    Thats the same cowl that is on my bluefox originally had a 503, i sold motor and installed a grey582, only difference ive cn in the mount for smooth or round cowl is there extra brackets welded to mount the round cowl fastners. And the one bar that runs from top to bottom on left side across front of carbs needs moved for carb clearence. Mayb these pic can help brainstorm that somemore.  Ill do all my model 1’s this way now and use .080 lexan

    I had a project one last winter was a Challenger II, kind of a cool machine i think, and i hear they easy to fly and good flyers also. But i ended up sellin/tradeing it off to a guy for a nice Yugoslavian rifle with rocket launcher  and some cash.

    Well how about doing the yamaha 2cyl phazer 80hp. 72 chevy is doing an awesome job ill bet he would helpout with the info for an install. I think that is where im going with my bluefox instead of the 670 rotax. Ill bet 100hp or even a little more b easy to get from the yamaha also.
