Hey guys

Odds are it's been done by someone sometime,i'd like flip front that 'flips' back toward the front screen

It's possible right? Bloody awkward i'd guess. Any advice/pics please?

Thanks

It’s not the wing to A-panel it’s more the front to keep it inline and secure. Cheers

Hey guys

Odds are it's been done by someone sometime,i'd like flip front that 'flips' back toward the front screen

It's possible right? Bloody awkward i'd guess. Any advice/pics please?

Thanks

I owned a Frogeye Sprite where the bonnet hinges up at the back and access underneath is a pain in the arse and your always worried the thing might fall on yo uas its really heavy (they do actually have a secondary prop to hold them up just in case.

 

As a comparison I had an Isle of Wight frogeye sprite where the bonnet hinges forwards like a triumph herald and access to the engine was fantastic.

 

Mind you I know what I would chose, a pair of steel wings and a front panel welded on in the proper way!
