If you do as he says, you might consider switching to a fuel bowl w/o the Thimble Drome engraving. Double check with Boesen on that, but I don't think that first version back plate was ever mated to an engraved fuel bowl at the factory.

I'll check that out Fred.  But I will spray two small pieces of metal, coat one with clear Lustrkote wait a week or two then drop some fuel on each.  But we already know the outcome;

Thanks Victor, you may be right but I believe I have others with that combination.  I will have to check that.  

Once you lay paint, things go pretty fast then you hit a roadblock.  Seems my latest printer ink is water soluble.  I have printed out many decals on decal paper and never had this happen.  Got to go to option two whatever that is.  Sad



Still a lot to do, tail wheel, controls, elevator hinges, decals, etc.





Picture added:

Couldn't help it. Smile I used all the original hardware except for the engine mount screws.

Yeah,  Not everybody knows that I lost my wife of 59 years, three years and 8 months ago to Alzheimer's.

Knowing her, it would have been ok as long as I cleaned it up to as new condition.  Still miss her every day.
