    Dear Yamma-Fox,
    It would be great if you could scan the instructions to PDF and post them.

    No, I have not found out anything more.

    Thanks again!
    Wy didn’t I think of using that drawing myself :-)?
    A great value of this forum is the possibility to soundboard with others, to get ones thinking straight and great advice.
    I really appreciate your time on this. I will now go out to continue with panelling the garage.

    Many thanks!
    The size of the inside of the garage is: L = 24’ 1”, W = 18’ 4”, H = 7’ 6”, which should be fine. The garage door size is W = 9’10” and H = 6’ 11”. Could it be possible to set the prop away from top position to come below 6’11” to move in the plane, first with the tail lowered and then the front with the prop away from top position (when the tail has passed the door and can be raised)?
    I have a KF4 1050 with a 10” lower tail than the Classic 4.

    Kitfox IV measurements
    I’m currently building a garage and wonder what the LxWxH measurements of a Kitfox IV is with wings folded, especially the L. 
    If possible, H on wheels and on floats.
    The idea is in the future to be able to store the plane in it with wings folded.

    Hi all, and thanks for the answers. I think the topic sidetracked a little from my original question. I should probably have used another headline. All good information is appreciated, but I wonder if someone has some more input to the original question and the answers from dholly?

    Gross weight increase Kitfox IV 1050-1200
    Does anyone have the instruction and pictures (both rod through carry through tube and strap between strut attach points) of the Kitfox modification from 1050-1200 for float operation?
    The reason for asking is that I intend to operate the plane on floats and would like to make it as rigid as possible, not to exceed the gross weight limit.

    I bought a 7 mm wide and 5 m long USB endoscope with LED lighting at the front of the camera via eBay from some company in HongKong and I got it two weeks later via ordinary mail to Sweden. I have  also ordered some crimp tools for coax wires and D-sub pins and it has worked great. I have always received the goods and been surprised of the prices. The payment were made via PayPal. 
    The endoscope was very easy to use, after the CD software was installed, all I had to do was to plug it to the computer and start using it. The software stared automatically on the computer when the USB was plugged in. The intention is to use it to inspect the inside of a broken longeron for corrosion. The plan is first to clean the longeron with the type of steel brush that is used for rifles with an extra extension, push the camera inside, take pictures every 4 inches and take notes on a paper in parallel. Then I can study the pictures thoroughly afterwards and depending on the results, possibly inspect some places closer a second time.
