He is me,and my friend is that good of a painter. Here's a pic of the bypass cover that is hidden inside the airplane,and a Bobcat he recently painted for a friend. All his paintjobs are mirror finishes.

Erik, great pics....I never understand how the airbrush artists are able to do that.....

I simply pointed out that the posted pics were not the correct way up which it would appear the OP did not know. He then rotated them and reposted them. Rather than thank me for pointing this out he seemed to get upset

DrJet,

Actually the credit for the extra fuel goes to Hans out of Switzerland. Goes by Hofer on here. He had Gary make him a tank that would fit under the canopy,and I jumped on the bandwagon. The only downside is the cockpit has to be removed and the canopy painted opaque. Pics show the tank install,canopy frame being reinforced with carbon,and the canopy painted. Dan is going to paint the tank soon.

Ron,

Forecast is cold,but its great to see everyone,start the year off with a flight or 2,and act a little goofy. Hope you can make it.

Jetflyer,

It's all about your presentation bud. You are incapable of making me angry,as I don't know you,and haven't given any value/credibility to anything you write. If nothing else,your style is abrasive,abrupt,and never seems to contribute anything positive,or of value to the discussion. Guys are chiming in from all over,about how you're rubbing them the wrong way. If I get that type of feedback,I always have a conversation with the man in the mirror. Good luck to you.

Merry Christmas everyone!
