Man, your'e going to miss all the chicks who want a ride. I have already promised the first ride to a knock-out lady of about 30 years. I'd keep the front seat if I were you!

I may very well choose to complete the ribs as the plans indicate. It's been working fine for decades, and it certainly doesn't need any fixing. However, at 44 years old, this may be the only plane I ever build. I want to responsibly embrace the 'experimental' aspect of this project. Perhaps if I keep an open mind to clever engineering at each stage of the process, I may even find an opportunity to innovate and contribute something to future builders (even if it is proving what doesn't work ). More than anything, I just want to enjoy the project as an exercise in creativity while never getting too far afield. As it is, I'm building my plane as a single place, 2 inches wider at the cockpit, taller dash, Sky Scout style landing gear, and a variety of other changes are being considered. Per the Pietenpol website, I think that they would prefer that I not even call it a 'Pietenpol'. (They actually emphasize that point.) Perhaps I will call it a 'Piet Inspired Airplane' Thanks for the tips and those helpful photos. There are some details there I need to explore a bit. -------- Andy Garrett 'General Purpose Creative Dude' Haysville, Kansas Read this topic online here: http://forums.matronics.com/viewtopic.p ... 238#444238 ========== br> enpol-List" rel="noreferrer" target="_blank">http://www.matronics.com/Navigator?Pietenpol-List ========== FORUMS - eferrer" target="_blank">http://forums.matronics.com ========== b Site - -Matt Dralle, List Admin. rel="noreferrer" target="_blank">http://www.matronics.com/contribution ==========________________________________________________________________________________Subject: Pietenpol-List: Modern old engine ideaRe: Modern old engine idea Modernold
