Thanks again to the responses, it's nice to get interaction. Perverse as it may be, I quite enjoy re-building as it is a challenge to the old grey matter, especially if it involves some enhancements / modifications. As I said earlier in this thread, I've got an old (ish) SIG Rascal 110" which I bought last year and have already converted to electric, but the covering was looking very tired, the red has faded to nearly clear on the tail surfaces and there have been numerous patches applied over the years. So I have now embarked upon a recovering exercise, I doubt if it holds much interest to formulites so I may just show the results of my endeavours rather than a step by step progress report.

I've got agree about the grey matter exercise Ron, it's just that I have an odd reluctance to repair my own disasters, but perversely I'm quite happy to take someone else's bin-fodder and spend many hours and much blood sweat and tears rebuilding and often enhancing it. My latest is a Black Horse P40, not much real damage but very tired the u/c needs a complete redesign. It's currently set aside while I mull over how to deal with the retract mounts and shortage of spar in that area.

Hi Bob. Maybe a new thread entitled 'The Repair Shop' where anyone can post their pictures of how they have fixed things. I know there have been threads about specific repairs but in the current 'lock down' my guess is that there are a lot more taking place. I, for one, would like to see what others are doing.

Not a bad idea Ron, sort of an enhanced 'tricks'n'tips.  Maybe a sticky in the Workshop area?

Very neat solution good work!. I guess as it’s open air and a 2s the can won’t get ridiculously hot i would think it will be fine. The silicone connector between header and can might get quite hot but I guess can easily be replaced if it gets too burnt.

@Tim - the silicone connector is the standard one that it used on all (most) 2s with cans and doesn't get affected by the heat (well they go a bit hard over time).
