    Yahoo TJay, thats a heck of a chore, closest ive come to that kind of project was puttin a house up on a second story concrete foundation after i had loaded it on a trailer, moved it 27 miles and lifted it up with a crane to set it, building weighed in at little over 55,000lbs. LOTS OF WORK FOR SURE!!!

    Dont think ive heard of .090 lexan/polycarbonate.  
    I used some .060on my first KF#0021 rebuild and first time i flew it at about 60-65mph in a downward slip the windsheild buckled in made a big pop and i nearly shit my pants!! 
    So i went to .080 and never have that problem again.

    Well i picked up a 07 phazer that fell of a forklift when guy was loadin it up on a pickup, super super cheap, hahahahaaaaa  she went BLAM perfectly upside down and got the top of everything, handle bars, gauge, top of cowlin, windsheild, right side ski and the leftside spindle.  Doing my resurch on the Phazer conversion and will do some parts stockin up.

    Right on thanks, ben tryin to get ahold of Ian, I like William's header$750 and mount$1200 but as i have a jig for model 1 i think ill set up and build my own to save a buck to spend it else where on the repower project, and have all winter to build stuff. Think the $550 for the wireing rebuild and computer programing is very fair with Ian. Ill check out Ben havent c his stuff yet but that really first part a guy needs to b able to setup prop centerline. Thanks Buddy!!!

    Hey Yamma Fox, any idea if Bryan does the phazer wire ect yet? Just picked up a wrecked phazer for my KF 0038 conversion, and do like Teals gearbox but think its out of my price range, ill probably do an adaptor to use my Cbox.

    My opinion is the acme shocks r awesome, BUT i have only flown one plane with TK1 for mayb an hr so im not able to give a good comparison, i know i do like the constrution of the acme much better than the tk1,  Ive been flyin my buddies 180hp cup with acme front and rear, and when its on the ground,,,,, its on the ground, no bounce sticks down sweet, thats what im buyin for the pa12 rebuild, have my order already in for the tail havent ordered the front yet since havent got the 3 ext gear so can give measurements.

    Hahahahahaahaaa yea Randy i finally got something to work on alright, like i need more work right? Gettin pretty close to final install of wings, motor,ect on the pa12. 
    This is Avid number 0022. The fuse in pu bed is an Avid A also that had been cutdown the middle and narrowed, not sure plan with that but mayb a wind sock. 
    0048 is the other model 1Kitfox (the yellow one) i have in shed to build into a super low weight, yammy big power, lots of prop and gear, my home made belly pod im workin on, big feathers, single seat in middle fishin buggy. Would b like a wide body cub in a way, short cheap trips from home in Ester to Minto Flats and Blair Lake for fishin may even install my EDO 1070 floats on it.  But that will b a project a few yrs down the road after soooooo much work on the pa12 since sept 2020.  Figure i have around 4200-4500hrs in it now and that dont include the help from guys at Croswinds and they did a whole lot of work to between times i was home waitin for parts.
