    Hey Travis. I just went with some DNJ parts from amazon. Went back to composite head gaskets. For surface prep, I just used 180 sand paper on a 12″ sanding bar I have, and cleaned up the mating surface. Checked it with a precision ground straight edge, and a .001″ feeler gage to check warpage.

    I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.

    Soon I hope. Been in a major funk lately, not real motivated. Might be the heat, that wears me down quick these days.

    BFB77DA9-770A-44D0-86C9-B1BFED1BE8C9Back to normal. First real trip to the model flying field today. About 40 miles round trip, temp cycling at 170-180, that’s perfect.
