Hey Vlad. Yup, I'm priming in and out. I began just doing the interior of the skins, but being in southeast Georgia I saw some surface corrosion on my tailcone shortly after getting it built. I think it was from some sweat that I missed cleaning up (built the tailcone in the middle of summer in my non-a/c'd garage ) but it still made me uncomfortable storing my parts in my hangar unprotected for several years.

MikeH on here is a local builder building a -14. He began priming in/out, and I followed suit.

You are doing right thing Jon. You should see my bare aluminum after flying for only three years

Default Showplanes Cowl

Just now getting a chance to post some pics of all the work we did over Thanksgiving.... Shayne and I had a long list.... but the cowling and intake plenums took us the full 10 days we had to work on it... but it's done.. and it looks great...



BIG THANKS to JDanno (Danny Riggs) for loaning us his Damaged MT Prop and Spinner (ours was delayed by MT, and he had a prop strike due to a nose gear failure... ask him if you wan details... so... $35 UPS with stubby blades and we were in business....).... Enjoy the Bourbon I sent you Dan.....



Had to Extend the intake plenums to meet up with the EFII Fuel Servo/Throttle Body.... FYI... A Pillsbury Icing container is the PERFECT fit for the mold and the epoxy doesn't stick to it... Came out perfect..



It's a lot of work to get the intakes to line up just right... LOTS







Also did the test fitting of the trial version of the new exhaust from Clinton @ Custom Aircraft Exhausts... Henry played shop dog....


Are We Done yet Dad??

Wow, John nice looking cowl. Not knowing much about the Show Planes cowl, how do you get alternate engine air?

Default Show planes cowl

John- cowl looks great. Is it designed for the camlocs on the firewall connection or was that a personal preference? What's your impression of the exhaust fit in the cowl?

Thanks,
-Mike

Rick,
I think the thinking is that since there's 2 intake locations and two filters, the odds of both getting clogged is slim to none... I have considered putting some sort to alt air opening on the intake plenums, but I'm just not sure if it's really nec... Its a question i had for other guys with he same set up.

Mike,
The 1/4 turns were my prefference and Bryan recommended Skybolt... I wanted the cowling to come on and off as quickly as possible. I like inspecting my whole engine as much as I can. Kind of wishing I had done the sides too... The hinges are a PAIN but they do look cleaner. You could use mil-spec too. I think they are the same... You could also machine your own flange the way Bryan does and save some $... again... if had known...
For this exhaust, we are the test dummies... I asked Clinton to make us a Forseling style exhaust since you can't get them anymore... so he's got a 540 at his shop with the BPE intakes and CAI on it for mocking up the exhaust. He's been working with Bryan and us to get the design and fit just right.. This first one was almost exact. Just had to move the tail pipes a little (they would have worked... more of a cosmetic thing). Can't wait to get the finished product...

Default Engine Run on a Dyno

Folks: I finally witnessed my first engine run today at G&N in Merrillville, IN. It's a Performance Aero IO-540 C4B5 with 10 to 1 pistons, dual LSE ignitions, and a lot of other extra goodies to hopefully increase performance. I'll get the numbers on it when I pick it up in a few days. I hope the Airflow Performance FM-200 servo lets it breathe OK. We'll see.

Hey all,

Haven't updated in a while. Waiting on the wings to be shipped. Just finished the elevator pushrod connections and the tailcone is complete. I am planning to work on the fiberglass while waiting for them to arrive. At least it will be done and won't have to do it all at once. Went to the Sebring Sport Aviation Expo this past saturday and had a good time talking at the Advanced booth and to a flying 10 builder. Good times.

Look forward to getting busy on the wings.
