    Better off with a Jabaru 2200 than the KFM orphan, IMO.

    I have 2-piston Grove calipers and standard Cleveland master cylinders on my plane that work acceptably well with my 26" Airstreaks.

    It's another auto conversion. 
    How long will they be around? When they're gone what do you do for parts? Can it be insured? What is your resale requirement?What is your tolerance for risk?

    20 hours in 10 years, the motor is needing rebuild or replacement.
    The model 4 wings and flapperons do not work properly with the early Avid style mixer.  This plane will handle questionably.

    Just the seat cover style or did you go fancy and put them inside the upholstery?

    That is the same prop that I have.  It is a great LIGHTWEIGHT prop that performs very well.

    I can't help with drawings, but just an idea:
    If you do your own mount, design it to use the Rotax Ring style mount.  This gives you more options for engines and factory parts than the four-leg style that is commonly used.

    Tail up level would be optimum, IMO.

    Part it out and call it a learning experience.  Put the money to lessons or an airplane that will realistically fit your mission.

    Mark 4 Avid is comparable to a Model 3 Kitfox.
    Very few, if any, parts would be interchangeable between them.

    A friend of mine is trying to make a play for it, he flies "recreational pilot" so the weight is of no concern to him.
