Problem with your hands / skin when it comes in contact with the epoxy. Will it started with me, at first I had no problems. I was wearing the latex gloves and everything (I thought) was fine. Until one night my hands began to itch and then came the blister. You guest it I've developed a histamine reaction to the epoxy, what to do First I checked the can of epoxy and found that white vinegar stop the chemical reaction, second I switched to Nitrile gloves. To protect my arms I put ply-9 gel on, you can get this from Wicks. So the process is like this: Gel, Gloves when finished wash off the Gel and then put on white vinegar I wet a paper towel, that solved it for me. I hope this helps other builders.
Engine from AeroSportPower chap. 23
Got the engine mount from CG Products Chap. 23
Aero Sport will be the engine for me, I like the IO-375B1B 205HP Constant Speed, I will use a MT 3 blade propeller. Yes, I know it's big bucks but 90% of the aircraft is about the power train. We will see when I get there....
