Re: Which Aircraft for a first time builder?

Build an RV12iS, fly it for a year, enjoy the sweet handling and then make you mind up. Either sell for more than it cost you and buy what you want, or keep it and enjoy Vans flying. The RV12 is a great introductory aeroplane, the quality and builder support is first class and you can build it yours...

Primer......

No, not what you thought :mrgreen:

If you use Tetrosyl Etch prime, they are having production issues. Just had an email from James Lomax, their Coatings Development Manager. They have no stock in 5 litre packs, but there are 1 litre packs available.

They hope to rectify shortly.

Re: Source of Stainless Steel Piano wire

Yes, anything in the Spruce catalogue can usually be sourced via LAS or Spruce Europe in Germany.

It is like a crossword - you have to know what question to ask to find out the answer. Very frustrating sometimes.

Re: Availability of Aerowave 2001

The prep for Tetrosyl is as simple as that. Scuff up with maroon Scotch, panel wipe and spray. Once applied as an interior primer, that is it, it is a good quality basic primer that will significantly enhance the corrosion proofing that Alclad already has. On the outside, it needs a build primer ove...
