Hi Bob, thanks for the input. I thought about doing what you just stated. Is it possible you could send some pictures?

Hi Mark,
Here you go - all very simple really. I chose stainless steal inserts because when it first happened, I tighten the M4 bolts but this only caused the lower bolt to strip in the air hence my second occurrence. I guess regular inserts would work but having seen the T nut strip I thought it worth getting some extra protection. Should also have mention that in addition to thread locker I also use spring washers and 'cowl bolts' are now on my preflight checklist!
Let me know if you need more.
Bob

Looks good Gary. Can you show any detail on the exhaust exit from the inside. I am interested in how the flex pipes are connected to the exhaust outlets in the fuse.

thanks!

Thanks Craig. I'll look for a picture showing the interior. In the meantime, what you see is one pipe which connects to the engine collector ring, goes through the fuse and out where you see it. It has a built in clamp on the one end, and a stinger pipe, cut on an angle, on the other. Not sure where Graham got them.

Default Exhaust bends

The exhaust bends are from KS-See attached link. I can't remember which size. They are then Tig welded to the moki extensions. Hope this helps-

Thanks for filling in the blanks Mike. One thing I want to add. The pipes are not welded to the Moki collector ring itself. The welding is to the end of the flex pipe. I'm not sure if the is a Moki part or not.

Hi Mike and Gary,

thanks for for the info guys.....exactly what I was after.

Gary, do you still sell the gear bay liners or know where I might be able to get them from?

Peter, your p47 looks great. Nice weathering. What are you using?

Default P-47

The P-47 gear bay liners are all scratch built-nothing commercially available to the best of my knowledge.

Yes. Graham Buccanan in the UK did the original building. My brother and I produced detail panels for the CARF Corsair, but don't have them for the P-47. I did make patters for the cowl flap system. That we can offer at some point.
