    My door is one piece hydraulic. it has a rubber bottom seal and some fin seals on the side that reduce gap. I added self-stick foam (Lowes) approx 3/4” wide x 1/2” thick to the steel jamb that the...

    Has anyone spoken with Norma and Steve? I’d presume this is a step towards retirement? Well earned. I hope they‘re happy. They leave a great legacy with their customer family.

    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.

    Hangar Door Insulation

    Never heard of a 15 minute fire rating over foam, and I'm in the fire door business. I'd check with an insulation contractor on that one. My hydraulic door has sprayed foam and white paint on that....

    The simple fabrication they refer to is trimming the sleeve to the correct length. Easily done.
  9. MATCO MC4 master cylinder to ABI-30-52N brakes for 35" wheels

    I have the same setup. We made a few changes and mine seem to work fine. My slide tubes were replaced with beefier SS tubes to eliminate any flex, which they were known to do. Mike added some bleeder...

    Don't rig 'em wrong.

    I have video shot forward from under the tail of my 180 with the Fluidynes on. Rock solid except when taxiing skis up on bumpy ground.

    That's good advice. I wonder since Air Glides move forward to retract whether the STC requires a different cable fitting location? As bad as the Cessna gear fittings were they'd have been an instant...

    That accident was attributed to the old clamp-on cable attach bracket used on many Skywagons. The geometry of the front cable was bad. My 180 had those brackets installed when I bought it. The...

    On a Cub I'd be more concerned about location of the cable attach points than bungees vs springs. And the OP is using retractable wheel skis, so there's another wrinkle.

    Bungees work fine as long as you don’t leave them stretched in cold temps or transition from damp freezing temps to cold overnight temps. I used springs with straights and still use bungees with...

    I asked what the allure of a -12 was. There’s a big difference between a stock -12 and one that’s modified with big motor, flaps, big baggage, Cub gear, and big tires. Both have merit. The plane he...

    The reason I asked is that the range of performance between stock and modified -12s is wider than any type I know. Most -12s fit somewhere in the middle and that isn't always a good thing. A -12 with...
