Thanks!!

I am getting an OS 26 and a Saito 30 and hoping i can form the inside to fit the cam housings. not sure which one will fit until i have them...should have them soon...Being so streamlined, the clearances are tight!!

Looks pretty!
Who produced the kit?
Is there any chance you got the plan and parts scanned for coming generations?

I did save the original plans. they were in great shape, but i did want to save them. i had them scanned and reprinted by a local blueprinting company. Thinking back, i should have taken pics of the parts as i went, because there was not a parts diagram, just the plans and instructions.

thanks!
