    Glue for Struts
    I'm getting ready to attach my wood fairings to my rebuilt struts. Questions to the forum.  What type of glue is recommended now days?  Should the strut tubing be painted first?  What should the wood be sealed with? Thanks you, Neil  model C HH

    Strut Farings
    I recently had my struts rebuilt using 1" tubing because of rust on the old tubes. I now need to paint and install the faring. There in lies my problem, what should I use to do this without buying Kit Fox's plastic faring ?  I'm thinking the wood faring was available from Avid years back. So what do we use now ? Thanks, Neil

    That's one option. Your right about that. I don't have the engine mounted yet.  Been working on the gear and fire wall. Once I get the engine mounted I can then see what needs to be done to Sub cowl to make it work. In the meantime something may pop up. Thanks !!

    Allen are you saying your fox cowling is for sale? If so is it the round cowling? My Avid came with a Subaru cowling that will not work. To narrow in the front.

    Thanks to all that are helping me get going with this project. I had an Avid that I rebuilt about 21 years ago when Airdale was around and I was 54 instead of 75. I had other Airplanes in between. I just need to get up to speed on where to get parts and how to navigate around this site. Jim Chuk has been very helpful. Thanks Fred for the Bungee post.
