  2. RF maybe you could speak to Ole at Australian aircraft kits. I believe he did the tidy conversion posted by pylon 500 in this thread. Jason

  5. Bill, when I had my Xair I got my tyres from here Trailer Parts | Garbutt | NQ Wheels & Castor Supplies I tended to pick up a few goat heads so got the heavier tread. They worked very well. Jason

  8. G’day Brett, I’ll lay money on your problem being your ducting to your radiator not allowing enough airflow. i’ve recently had to mount my radiator vertically on the engine mount near the Firewall on my 601 HDS and had the same problem. I originally had a Plenum over the radiator fed by various inlets but eventually had to make a NACA duct feeding directly to the face of the radiator to allow effective ground cooling. It now runs waaay to cool but that’s a simple fix with some Aluminium tape. Jason
  9. No. On his way South from Innisfail to Dysart. Landed at Ingham due to Weather and crashed it whilst landing. Jason
  10. That link was back in 2014. There was a Storch that flipped on landing a couple of days ago though. Jason
  11. Skippy, have you got a close up photo of the Staining ? If the Chemicals you have tried have had little effect, I would start doing test spots starting with a light Polish/Pad Combo gradually moving up to a heavy Compound and even Wet Sanding if required. Sometimes there just isn’t enough Paint to remove the defects and repainting is the only option. It would probably be easier and cheaper for you to get a GOOD local Detailer to have a look at it for you ( I may know someone in your area ) For protection you can’t go past a good quality Professionally applied Ceramic Coating althoug
