Default Wow ...

Some of you guys have truly AMAZING builds going! As was already said of Matt's plane, DON'T PARK ANYWHERE NEAR MY PLANE.

Seriously, some of you are setting the bar so high that even an above-average project looks like doo-doo. Congratulations to you all. I'm looking forward to seeing them all in person (just don't park next to me, OK?)

Carry on.

Speaking of fittings....sometimes they just don't sell what you want, so you spend a pleasant evening with the machines.



Edit: Installed this AM....fitting connects a relocated brake reservoir with the master cylinders. Aluminum line runs parallel to the right brake line behind the panel, SS/teflon hose down to the cylinders.

Still a bit of touch up to do with a lil bleed through in a couple of places and for some reason I missed a couple of squares at the trailing edge..easy fix.

Default Nice Fittings!

Dan - nice work. Great location for the reservoir for ease in servicing. What machine do you have to make such nice work?

An old Smithy, which is a lot like an old shotgun.....can't brag on it, but it brings home most of the food.

(hey, gentle reminder; don't neglect to crop/resize your photos before uploading)

The current photo is 1600 x 1200 pixels, which extends the right margin of the whole page and makes everybody pan back and forth to read the text.

Two choices......

Resize before you upload to a photo share. Almost any photo program will resize photos, so chances are you have the tool. 600 wide x any height works real well in this forum.

Resize during the upload to a photo share. Tinypic has that option; the "resize" block is just above the "upload" button. Select "Message Board 640x480" from the drop down menu, then click hit upload.

Please excuse the reminder and tutorial; I'm an AH and it's a pet peeve
