Rudder looks bang on to my fading eyes. Perhaps a poor colour match tho-- ;)

Make one yourself out of foam board. Easy


It’s done permatempary.


Jobs stopped until the correct size mounting pillars arrive.
So I’ve rewired the dash all neat and tidy.
I’ve printed a air filter (round box with screw lid resized to suit)
See pics.
Gauze from a anti splatter frying pan mesh cover.
Proper air filter foam from motorbike shop.
I had to drill the holes but it means at least the dashboard moulding will fit.

If you hurt yourself doing the blades. You really need a cork on your fork when you eat.
Safe as houses.


Having the splitter plate removed means my centre rudder was to short and too high. So I had a rummage and found a temporary one.
If anyone has a rudder 300x750 ish for sale please let me know.
It looks odd but it will do

Making statements such as that ......mmmm......sounds dangerous to me.

I’ve done it now but thanks for the tip.
Our lass has come home to engine parts in the oven.
Engine parts in the dishwasher.
I think it’s now a surprise if she comes home and there’s food in the oven and pots in the dish washer

You get a better reaction if you warm both parts before mixing, the downside is  the wife gets a little cranky when she finds the tins in her beloved oven. if its pre-heated It foams extremely quickly so you get a bigger foamed volume it also generates a lot of heat

The foam was a big disappointment.
I was expecting so much more.
I was expecting mt versuvias in a split second of mixing the two parts.
Turns out it’s a big disappointment reaction takes an age and the expansion is poor.
(I know how our lass feels now).
