I've managed to beat up the nose of my Mig a bit (shock, gasp, horror, etc). Hot water seems to have put it back into shape, but I'm wondering if the opening is the same size now. Does anyone have a new fuse that they can take a few measurements for me? Mine doesn't look perfectly round (can't remember if it ever did), but just a quick measurement of width and height of the opening would be fine.

BTW, on the landing gear mod - I initially used East Coast's paperclip trick, but the paper clip I used was too soft and I was constantly re-bending it. I found some wire that was the right diameter and bent a new one, and while this has proven incredibly durable, it is extremely springy. This has led to some really bouncy landings even when I get the mains down first. So, EC, wondering if your canadian paperclips are a little tougher than ours are here in the states. Maybe it's just the colder weather up there.
