    EDE2AC14-B4F7-49B8-9CDD-1572F5228FDD.jpeg Just taken ownership of another T595. Bought on eBay for a ridiculously cheap price. Non runner, but I have the bits on mine to try the obvious usual suspects. Not run since purchased in 2018, but it’s all there. Tank looks full of bubbles, usual fare, generally clean and presentable.

    So, put a battery on this and even with 6yo fuel it fired right up. Slight popping, black smoke on a hard throttle, bit rich on idle suggests remap for HL can.
    Took off the tank, removed IACV, replaced hoses with silicone then refitted. Airbox had a big crack around it, so repaired with glue and plastic welding but ideally could do with another airbox.

    Got the bodywork off, tank badly affected by ethanol, cracked top fairing and small hole in bellypan so currently repairing them before my mate paints them.

    Back on it, finished the upper fairing, ready for paint, bellypan almost there and bubbled tank stripped.
    I found the paint where it bubbles is quite fragile, and cracks easily, obviously the ethanol affects the paint. I found if I used a hot air gun I could peel it off in sheets. I’ll probably get it lined then repaint it. Already have the decals.

    Finished the nose cone and the tank is almost there, then I decided to have a look at the cracked seat cowl. I was told by the PO that his lad dropped something in it but when I dropped it down it was cracked along its length and had had a poor fibreglass repair.
    I ground out the filler, stitched it inside and out with the plastic welder then filled it with Plast-X.

    Haha, nice one fella.
    Not sure if you heard, Tappity Tim passed away last year. Bit sad he was only in his 40’s.

    Still speak to Paul the Bastard, TQ (Anne), Wayne (Red Monkey), Super Spinney Lord Stu and Nige (SirTT) occasionally.
