    Correction, it's not near Higgins Bay. I just talked to him and he said it's 70 miles from HB.

    Another question, you got room to land a small helicopter at your place?

    I'm very familiar with Morehouse, I've been there several times..my wife's uncle has a hunting camp there. It's a very small town.

    Lots of places to land a helicopter, I can help get a location. I'll PM you.

I have a painter friend who set me up with a painting rig that sprayed the paint without thinning it.

    I just started reassembly; haven't done much, but I'm pointed in a forward direction and building momentum:

    I have a lot of miscellaneous parts ready as well, one very satisfying example is the brakes:

    Here's a pic of the tow loop I made to replace the broken one:

    Things are slowly coming together, I'll soon have the suspension complete and put the wheels on the chassis. I'll probably take a few pics later today with the suspension complete.

    I finally finished the LCA's, and pretty happy with the result. I used a reinforcement ring from Dgo, I really like it. My welds have a few rough spots, but overall looks good. I'm really jazzed about how much sturdier they are now. I'm sure there are other types of failures the reinforcement plates don't address, but I really feel they're sufficient now.

    I've been using a gun metal color on a few parts, it looks good against the yellow chromium and black.

    Very nice looking stuff.

    When you box the control arms, do you put drain holes in the lowest part? Is it completely sealed? Otherwise, I think it will rust from the inside. If it is sealed, you should "oil" the inside. Just drill a 1/8" hole and pour a small amount of linseed oil in. Then weld up the hole. After it cools, rotate the part several times to allow the oil to coat the inside. This is standard procedure for aircfart frames. It makes a big differnce.
