Also, you are riveting through some glass too and it does not have an edge where the aluminum stops.

Thank you for providing that advice Ed.  I followed the Cozy MKIV plans for this work, and those plans do not adhere to that minimum acceptable edge distance of 2.5 x diameter of hole drilled.  

The diameter of the hole we drill is 1/8", so that recommended distance from the edge is 2.5 x 1/8" = 0.3125"
The actual plans distance from the edge is 0.12"... less than is recommended.

These rivets must go through hinge A3, then through bracket A2, then through the center line of tube A10... so how do we adhere to the plans requirement as well as the 2.5 recommendation?
(see attached image)

Of course, there have been no failures of the Cozy aileron attachment methods, so I will not be changing anything... its just a discussion.

Thanks!

Re: West 105 Epoxy System Discount

Bob Holliston
 

Hey guys, after fairing in three LongEZ's I wouldn't use anything but West System (plastic bubble) micro. I've used the normal white (glass bubble) micro, Superfill (a little heavier but fewer pinholes and craters and more user friendly) and West. The West micro is softer and sands approximately twice as fast as the other two. It IS more $ though. I faired in my present LE with West seven years ago in 250 hours and it's held up fine.

Hello Paul,
Wow!  Thats a great deal for micro!!
I am on my 3rd, 5 lb. bag of micro.  I will need 1 more bag for a total of 20 lbs of micro for a Cozy MKIV (I am not applying micro to the interior), so I think 1 of your 28 lb bags should be enough for your Long-EZ.
I have sanded off most of that micro.

Sanding Boards... I followed the advice I got here.
30" long rigid 3M board (borrowed) $70
30" long flexible 3M board (borrowed) $70 
7 Piece Hook & Loop Dura-Block Kit AF44HL $100

Sandpaper
3M Green Corps 36 Grit, 30"x4.5", R.S. Hughes $68.28
3M Green Corps  80 Grit, 30"x4.5", R.S. Hughes $66.16

Air Tool
Ingersoll Rand 315 $120 (need a big compressor)

So far, I have used (and continue to use) everything listed above, and wouldn't have wanted to be without any of the items.  They are all must-haves for me... and I try to be cheap.
This finishing work is TOUGH!  Longest chapter for me and not done yet....

  Im assuming you mean the ENTIRE interior ... but you will need to use micro everywhere ( that shows anyway)  that you used tapes on.  Otherwise you will see every splice and tape seam after painting, , even with Zoelatone.

Staniel Cay, Bahamas is OK

Bill Allen
 

Following the hurricane, I reached out to a place I’ve stayed before several times to see what help they needed.
John Chamberlain has some great cottages overlooking the beach by Staniel Cay Yacht Club. 

He says they didn’t have any damage and his place is open for rental.
I suspect that, as with other catastrophes, the actual area of extreme devastation is smaller than it is in the minds of those who were planning to visit.
My experience of Irma in the Keys was like that, but as the Keys are connected to the infrastructure of the USA they could recover more quickly than the Bahamas can.
So even if you can’t help by nailing on roofs etc etc, you could help by maybe flying your Cozy/LongEz over and spending some tourist dollars there :^)
Contact John Chamberlain (cc’d above) to find out more about how open Stenial Cay is for visitors.

Re: COZY: Springs..??

Andrew Anunson
 

CG Products (Cozy Girrrls) sell the complete assembly as part "Rudder Over-Travel Spring Assembly".  When you consider making your own, you need to buy music wire in large quantities and then figure out how to bend it.  IF I needed the springs today (and hadn't built my own), then I would go with CG Products preassembled ones.

David is right. Just showing up and spending some money on interesting services will help the people who live there get back to normal (as can be expected). My impression is many of the locals at Cat Island enjoy a challenge.

I told people I was a year away right up until my first flight - kept the stress down...for them and me. I didn't tell my family that my first flight was my second flight - I did my no pressure flying a week earlier...with one good canard guy "holding the keys", so to speak. On the big day he had champagne in his strake coming to attend when his engine quit and he forced landed back at Van Nuys. Decided on a beer instead of attending my second flight - discovered his champagne on a later day.

I had people asking why I was going to Puerto Rico after their disaster - I am not much for repairing roofs but I figured people would stay away and the tourist economy would be hurt. So I went to try to do my tourist part. I'm trusting Chris and Curtis Wray to find somewhere in the Bahamas we can go and support their economy too. After 5 good trips to the Bahamas, I will go again, even if I am on the left coast. Hope you all will come to Disneyland after the big Quake of 2020...or whenever...if nothing else than to see a freeway city stop running altogether. Do something every day and the plane will get finished.

West 105 Epoxy System Discount

Andrew Anunson
 

West Marine sells the West 105/206 system epoxies that some of us use for finishing, and with their free shipping (orders of $49 or more) they are the least expensive supplier that I could find.  

Today through September 11th we can get 20% off on this epoxy system... along with free shipping on orders of $49.  To get the 20% discount, use code MK55830.  This saves over $100 on the 5 gallon kit.

I have been purchasing West epoxy kits for the past year, and I've never seen a discount like this... Act Quick!!!
