1. Guest,
    We need good tech writers that are willing to help out here at ZL-OA. If you like taking photos of jobs as you perform the steps on your repairs, have historical ads/documents from old magazines, or any else you think belongs in the Technical Library than you might be able to help. Send a private message to Furchin, Mudrunner88, Chris, Jarney, Wuputt, or Markus56 and we can lead you in the right direction to get started.

    :hello: On the bottom of the 70s seat I decided to put some foam dampers between the spark plug wrench & the seat pan. :laughing7:. I used Areospace ISO 9001 certified foam. It never dry rots & it resists high temps. When I worked for Lockheed Martin this foam was used for damping electronic componets for our Navys Ship Contol Systems & Submarines to obtain low EMI. I also use this foam to dampen the batteries holders in all my bikes. IMG_6839.JPG IMG_6840.JPG IMG_6841.JPG IMG_6842.JPG
