    Yep John, these rims are for 6" tires. You're right,  I'm wrong.  I miss read it.  Just looking for 8" 3 hole Douglas wheels on line, and am not finding any.   JImChuk

    I usually have them ship with the post office, but because of the hydraulic fluid, it couldn't go that way.  JImChuk

    Those look like the wheels for the Kitfox and I believe they are, but the builder added three more holes to fit the 6 holes in the Kitfox hub.  Also, Kitfox welded on three pieces of aluminum to the back of the wheel, machined it, drilled and tapped it to bolt the brake rotor on to those three lugs.  JImChuk

    Whelen green lens needed
    Hi all, Does anyone have a green lens left laying around from a whelen position/ strobe light set up?  I've got the rest of the parts, but broke the lens and they want bunches of gold for them.  Thanks,   JImChuk

    I was able to text back and forth with Ed's step son, and he knew about Draco, said he had hooked up a smart TV and showed some bush plane type videos on it.  He was going to look for the scrappy gets a paint job next.  Said he would also look into Ed's computer to see if he can get it back up and going.  I mentioned how we missed Ed on the forum.  JImChuk

    Hey Allen,  I don't know if we do it cause we love it or we are just plain crazy.  Either way though I'm going to keep at it.  JImChuk

    I suppose Wag aero tacked on some, but usually they are pretty good with shipping.  It could have gone with USPS except for the hydraulic fluid.  JImChuk

    Crazy or what?
    I just got a small order in from Wag-Aero.  Because I had ordered a quart of hydraulic brake fluid, it had to go with UPS ground.  I live about 425 miles from Wag-Aero and it cost me $26.87 for shipping.  Rediculous.  Here is what I ordered.  Probably weighed 3 lbs at the most.  Thank you UPS.   Funny if it had come from China, it would have been free shipping and the parts would have been half the price I paid. Ok, rant over for now, but it didn't make me a whole lot happier.   JImChuk

    Just got off the phone with Ed.  Told him about how his name is on Scrappy.  It did make him happy.  He still isn't doing very well, he was out of energy after talking for a few minutes.  We probably made his day though, glad you spotted his name in the video.  JImChuk
