    I am going with an IO-340 with fuel injection and electronic ignition from flyefii.com. Will be building the engine up in the near future.

    Got my AvWeld gear today. Looks pretty nice! Powder coated black.
    I think I have my colors picked out. With the engine I am using I thought it would look cool painted up like a 1970 Boss 302 Mustang. Going with orange with black trim.
    Sorry about the pic, all I had was an orange highlighter. The color will be closer to Hemi or Hugger orange.

    Man, if you match those colors that thing is going to be awesome. Nice choice. Paint schemes aren't the easiest thing to decide on.

    Av8r, efwd
    Thanks for the positive comments! I thrashed about trying to find something that would fit the airplane and engine combo. I wanted something different and have always wanted a Boss 302... I think it is a good fit. Now I need a logo of a really musclebound fox for the tail flash.

    Been a while since I posted an update...
    Last nite a couple guys stopped by and we got the case halves together. Had an IA come by today to give it a looksee today and got the go ahead. Exciting times!
    Since my Kitfox is a Boss 340 (Boss 302 tribute) I figured I would go with Ford blue for the case and cylinders with black accents.

    A quick look after the paint.
    Cutting weight wherever I can. Taper fin cylinders, only one idler under the accessory case, lightweight flywheel from flyefii.com etc etc
