    "Chicken switch"

    I am laughing hard at that!

    Love original, some extra crispy, and a the bar-b-que wings...


    Fantastic place to work, with all the machine tools.I found that having the mill and lathe took me two to three times longer to do any project because I was very detailed, and required things to be nice. Prior- cut to size, beat to shape, shim to fit and be done!

    Will we see this bird at the Airman's show?
    I don't know where you've been me lad, but I see you won first Prize!

    I have no reason to have it at the show. Maybe parked at Hood at some point during the show dates, unless I'm out flying it. I have a friend coming up to fly some aerobatics performances if things work out. If he's here I'll stay in town a little more than usual. And maybe he'll be out flying it!

    Air flow control in the oil cooler outflow ducts. Pilot controlled oil temp in front mounted coolers. Bye bye duct tape.

    Painting an engine red is like taking bananas on a fishing boat!

    Superior didn't offer to paint my engine and I didn't ask. If I painted it I'd have chosen Lycoming gray like I did on my last one. Powder coating the engine compartment parts wasn't my idea, either, but I'm happy with the result. It makes a big impact for the dollars spent.

    The banana I keep in my pocket. The engine in the plane.
