--- CERAMIC COATING ON PIPES
Added a ceramic coating to the stainless pipes for protection and heat insullation.
---CARGO AREA SUPPORT
Needed a support system for the baggage area to protect the aircraft systems for travel
--- NEW ANTENNAE IN WINGLETS
ERacer plans do not account for antennae, This retrofit works so excellent!!
--- ADSB, HOMEMADE JACKS, and a little PAINT
Installed a Skyguard ADSB system, built some great homemade jacks and painted the lower belly of the aircraft red.
Changed the NACA scoop, Oil cooer airflow and scoop and I added some exit air vents to the top of the cowling. Overall CHT's 50 degrees less and oil temps, 20 degrees less.

--- REBUILT INSTRUMENT PANEL
The panel was rebuilt to accommodate new instruments and have Ipad integrated onto it, more passenger legroom and better looks and wiring
Designed and built a folding ladder for easier entry
--- EFII ELECTRONIC IGNITION
Replaced one Magneto with this EFII ignition system. It gives the ERacer 2 separate ignition systems and works great giving good starts and smooth operation every flight.
I finally added a spinner. Martin Skiby made me the initial cone and I created my own flow guide after a failed attempt. I finally came out great and looks good too.
This one of the best additions I have made to the ERacer. This sunscreen is invaluable on those hot cloudless cross country days. My wife loves it!!!
This section shows some of the upgrades I have made to my ERacer over the past years These may give you some ideas and illustrate how you are never really finished building unless you want to be.
