    hi everyone, I'm gonna wait on the engine and get the other parts that I have the build manual for. I'm in the process of installing the brake calibers, and I'm confused on it. Does the calibers bolts to the landing gear or is it free floating? Here are some pics for you all.

    Hope everyone is doing good. I was able get back at the airplane the otherday, before I went back to work. Getting ready to add engine, so I can start some wiring. Just a question before hanging it, is there an special way the rubber bushings go?

    Oh good, mine is like that at the bottom also. Just had the bottom clamped to help holed it in place. My kids keep messing with it. Right now the firewall is aluminum just getting an ideal how it goes before I make a set out of stainless steel.

    sorry I'll try explain better, 
    I think they where gonna do the bottom part like the top, and box it in.
    When I assembl the firewall, and getting ready to mount it to the fuselage does it rivet into the fuselage?
    Sorry for the stupid questions

    Okay so probably box it in on the aft side like they did the top. I'll get a picture of the top to show what I'm talking about. Now when it comes time to mount it to the fuselage, do I drill in the fuselage for the firewall? The manual I have don't have the firewall and engine assembly, so I'm in the dark on this part. I did download the manual for the kf1 for a guide on the firewall.  
    Thank you

    I can't wait to fly it. We've talked some TJay, about painting the fuselage.

    Thank you for your response. Yes I did find the bolts for that, just can't find the strap. I may need to get the metal and cut and drill it. Just don't know to use the 4130 and a good thickness.

    Kitfox model 1
    Hi everyone, I'm looking for some guidance on building a kitfox model 1. At this moment I'm just getting everything together, while I'm trying to finishing up my private pilot certificate. The tube fuselage is painted, getting ready to paint the rest of the metal parts. I'll also be adding pictures during my build so everyone can get a good laugh, at my stupid questions. The first one question.
    1) Does anyone has the engine build section on the kfm 112 engine. Can't seem to find that in my manual.
    2) does any one have a template for wind screen template.
    3) tailwheel spring bracket, is that also 4130 steel Included pictures. I cant find anything in the book about a bracket to keep the spring rotating on the single bolt.
    I purchased the kitfox about a year and half ago 
    Thank you
