    Random Pics Of My GA Build

    I will have the updates of my build in this thread.
    The faceplate is base on 172N that I yanked out from our local boneyard here in Cali. Painting this thing actually takes longer than building the whole flap unit =[.

    Clear acrylic is still implemented in this design and it will be mounted inside the housing.

    I had to fabricate my own special tool to give a 90 deg fold without warping the mounting ears. I know it's missing some screws but this design is done!

    My CAD prog is acting up for some odd reason I'm unable to install the extension spring on this design. The picture is self-explanatory where the spring is suppose to be constraint.
