Well I have his prop wrench and the ultimate gust lock and I give them both a big thumbs up.

Edit: Forgot I have the oil filter wrench too!

Default I have most of them

I have installed many of the products from AntiSplat on my 9A. My favorite is the wheel mods where they press in sealed bearings. Next up would probably be the Almost-a-14 mod and the Air/Oil separator. Nose job is good too but hopefully I will never need to test it. I also installed the vacuum adapter for the air\oil adapter, the magnetic oil plug, Jack points, and the gust lock.

I have nothing but good things to say about the company and the support I got when I called them with questions/concerns.

Default Good products - good people

In order of purchase/install:

Nose job(peace of mind for A model)
Nose wheel bearings(helps eliminate shimmy)
air/oil separator with vacuum(clean belly and cures annoying tiny oil leaks)
gust lock(keeps getting better)
main wheel bearings(no more grease + shimmy elimination)

Good products and good people to deal with.

that's secure but I didn't see any cracks before. when I look at this area my heart says yes but my mind says why? I hate it when that happens.

Anti-spat products:
1. nose job
2. prop wrench
3. oil wrench
4. gust lock

Good quality products all, plus you get a cap which makes you look like a farmer.
