    Looking good. I have only ever seen or used the black o'rings for aircraft.

    Beautiful work. Getting parts must be a pain.

    It is.

    Thanks to this fantastic forum I found the supplier.

    But the shipping to Italy is expensive and long...

    But we keep pushing!!

    Alessandro,

    Do you have easy(ish) access to Aircraft Spruce items in Italy?
    If not, you may find it a bit cheaper and easier to try using LAS Aero here in UK (https://www.lasaero.com)
    They have weekly shipments from Aircraft Spruce to UK and I have had Aircraft Spruce parts stocked in USA delivered to me in 7 days.
    LAS also stock all the Randolph paints etc.

    Ciao Tony!
    Thank you very much for the info.

    Yes, I’ve already bought from Spruce.eu but some parts, as firewall, I must buy in US.

    It is a little bit more complicated but the fun part is that I can “meet” a lot of people that love shortwing and Pipers.

    The worst shipping will be with Airtex.....

    I hope the final result make me happy.

    Thank you.

    Alex.
