Anyone ever notice that early L717 lenses have two slots a third of the way up inside .

These are for alloy reflectors .

Anyway yesterday whilst faffing about in the loft i found a pair of these so thought id fit em in .

They really do concentrate the light better giving a brighter indicator :D

Year end report .
Only 7 pages of waffle this year so less than usual.
TBH not much serious stuff was done although respraying the front off side wing was fairly major .
Building the extra engine lid support was a challenge but well worth it .
Other than this it was just bits and pieces that i altered / cleaned / moved .
Have a great Christmas everyone :)

I asked about these back in 2016 on Petulas thread , Bazz & Peter hadn't got a clue about them , now you've pointed it out yes it's obvious that its a reflector for lower half of unit.

Have a good Christmas Dave

Back in Nov 2018 I trial fitted one of the very first in tank fuel filters that Bob Picton was doing.

Unknown to him I also fitted a new inline filter by the carbs .

The idea being to test wether anything gets through Bobs filter and is therefor caught and visible in the rear filter .

Well 14 months later im very pleased to report that absolutely nothing got through and the inline filter is spotless .

Therefor ive removed it completely as i deem it unnecessary and got rid of two joints in the fuel line into the bargain .

Pipe ive used is Cohline 2240 . Its suitable for E15 rated petrol , Ethanol, Diesel and Biodiesel fuels so im ready for whats coming .

I have Bob's in-tank filter too - worth every penny!
I almost forget that I had one - it's that good. 8)

Does 'BOBS INTANK FILTER' tm sit over the outlet inside the tank? I made something to sit over mine but have not yet fitted it because I was wondering how to make it so it wouldn't move about?

More photos of cats please Dave... :-)
