--- 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.










---COWLING MODIFICATIONs

​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.

​       Original baffling                     Modified baffling                         Original NACA                                     Modified NACA


--- 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

















--- LADDER

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.














---PROPELLER SPINNER

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.


































--- SUNSCREEN

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!!!
