    Hi Frank,

    Great to hear from you.

    Very wise to not push the carry-through drilling until you have the right tools.

    How thick was each bit of plywood that you glued up?

    Hi Frank,

    Glad to hear you are making progress. When you have the time a picture of the fuselage in its present state would be great.

    But totally understandable if you are too busy for that.

    Yep. Sometimes it's just better to stop when you are snake bit.

    BTW you're quite inspirational in that you had a crash and decided to build a new plane. Some people would have just given up.

    The benefit of the neck gaiter over just a turtleneck is that if you need to, you can pull it up over your nose and therefore cover your cheeks, nose and mouth.

    Nothing wrong with wearing both.

    Hi Ron,

    Thanks for the reply. Did you put an inline fuse in the line to the battery?

    Is your installation intended for battery top-off/maintenance charging? Or for full recharging?

    Thanks!

    Hello Wes,

    These look good. One question:

    There seems to be hold down the centerline. Are they to hold two halves together? Or can they be used to mount the connector on a bulkhead?

    thanks!

    What is the wiring behind the connector? Wire directly to the battery? If so, what gauge did you use?
