  • I recently purchased anS6 with 150 hours on a 582. I have assembled and owned a 582 powered S-12, a 912 Powered S-12XL, and have assembled most of an older S-6 for a friend. I am planning on installing a 912UL in my recent acquisition. It is now winter here in Calgary AB Canada and my hanger is not heated. I hope to acquire everything I need, then rent a heated hanger for a month to do the swap. I will purchase everything I need from Rans. I do not want to be missing anything when I start. Is there anyone that has done this? I am not sure what extra items beside the Rans FWF kit that I need. Rotax engines seem to be less expensive in Canada so I may purchase the engine here. Any tips would be appreciated. Thanks Ed
  • Manual says to leave boot Cowl off till after painting! What is the purpose of this? Maybe for installing windscreen? Can you not just install everything and just mask the windscreen or is there something else you need the Cowl off for? Steve
  • In the S21 progress report # 27 there is talk of an Assembly Alert for using VHB tape to install the lexan to the door frames. However, when I search for the assembly alert -----no joy. My kit did include the VHB tape, but there are no instructions on where to use it. It does not look like there is enough to do the entire perimeter of the door and the center seams, so I am wondering if it is only for the center seam. Or, anywhere the lexan meets the door frame? Guidance please.
