    Whirl Wind will provide you with a 2-piece backer. You assemble that and bolt it to the prop base. The spinner has a bushing (for lack of better description) inside the spinner tip that fits snugly...

    Wolf Lake has a crosswind runway and plenty of space at the intersection to land diagonally. Handy. Grass infield on both sides of the runway get more use than the pavement. I like it.

    Or.... insulate it to be consistent with the rest of the building. My hangar door is 25% of my total wall space. It doesn't make sense to build a lid to R50 and walls to R23 and cheap out on the door.
