Welcome to My Adventure. I'm Chad and I'm building A Cozy Mk IV Experimental Aircraft. This site will serve as my FAA required builders log, a fun way to track my journey, and a source for others who come behind me. Stay a while, Look around, and maybe get inspired to follow you're dream.
Main Gear Strut, sanded, cut to 95" total length w/legs cut at
8 degrees up at the trailing edge.
Jumping ahead, I started step 9.2 because my shop heater is broken and I can't do any layups in the current temps. Step 9.2 is the prep of the main gear strut. It involves sanding the strut to a dull finish so it will take epoxy, cutting excess length from the strut legs, and cutting an angle in the strut legs to match the angle that it will be installed in the fuselage. This was all very straight forward with no issues and took about 3 hours or so total.
