Airframe is finished in white and blue metallic and is in excellent general condition,  G-SUTE has never been aerobatted meaning that there are no smoking rivets! It has always been hangared and fully covered to keep out the dust! As such all surfaces and exposed hinges etc are in clean pristine condition.
The engine is cleared to run on Mogas or or UL91. However it has used nothing but 100LL since new. Capable of 28 litres per hour fuel burn at 75% power and 22 litres per at 50% power.

3  Vans RV Discussion / Vans RV Construction / Elevator skin damage
 on: 05.08.2019 at 10:00:50 
Started by Michael_Dooley | Post by Michael_Dooley
Good morning all
I'm constructing an RV12 and starting on the empennage.
Checking some of the skins has revealed a couple of small dents in the elevator skins. Probably my fault.  
I assume that I should be ordering a new skin from vans or do you think it can be removed. Advice appreciated
Thanks in advance
Mike
ps I can't work out how to add an image so if someone could let me know I can upload one.

Hi Everybody  
I have been flying the rv12 for about 2 years now  and I find the bottom cowl a pain to remove l wondered if it would be a good idea to apply to the LAA to modify the bottom cowl by fitting a flap door or screwed hatch underneath for inspection purposes any thoughts?

Hi everyone,  
 
I wondering if any of you have a crimping tool that you could lend me...?

6  Vans RV Discussion / Vans RV Construction / Horizontal stabiliser cracks
 on: 16.02.2019 at 16:31:29 
Started by Andrew_Garner | Post by Andrew_Garner
Calling all owners of RV-6/6a, 7/7a, 8/a.  
 
Have any of you ever seen or heard, of the horizontal stabiliser cracking that SB 14-01-31 rectifies..?  
 
I'm in the process of finalising an RV8 that has been under construction for many years an the SB has not been done. With the HS fully completed and the workmanship (not mine) being of a very high standard, the issue is do I want to pull it apart to do the SB or just check for cracking each year and then complete the SB if a crack should appear..?
 
So, if you have any experience with this I would appreciate hearing from you. If you can recall the approximate hours when it was first noticed that would also be great info.  
 
Many thanks,  
 
Andrew

I am trying to find a supplier for the piano wire used on the top cowling. The wire size is 2.25mm or .090 inches. This is outside the normal SWG sizes that are easily available. I had a friend confirm that this is the size supplied by Vans in their kits.
