Thanks Gary. I use the hot glue gun all the time. It's great when the wife isn't home to hold something for "just a minute"...

Jim, let us know how you like the tape.

Office clips, your best friend. They come in all sizes. One pic is worth a thousand words...

Vario tail bearing inserts

I have found great difficulty in the past with trying to get the inserts into the tail drive tube, even shaving off the rubber "O" ring because of the sharp edge on the tube
I am in the process of re building a Vario Acrobat, with my own thicker walled tube
Decided to bevel off the inner edge to allow the "O" rings to compress evenly

So I'm fitting the doghouse panels on my 212 and I want a flush installation with no screws showing. I decided to use a combination of magnets and hook latch. So I bonded a strip of wood under the area where I want to use magnets. Then I drilled a pilot hole for the pilot on the drill to follow. Then I used a flat bottom piloted drill bit to counter bore the area just deep enough for a magnet to sit in. Then I bond the magnet in the counter bore and it sits flush with the surrounding fiberglass structure. I custom ground this drill bit at work because I didn't have the correct size counter bore handy and I had zero patience to wait for the tool to arrive. But I have included the link to buy the correct tool for the job. This makes everything flush and the install looks great. I will space these magnets at 1" intervals along the rail.

Nice

Barry

Do you have a zoomed out picture with all parts together ?

Also, any tips for making a sliding door silky smooth ? last time I used Vario's I shaped brass pieces glued to doors and were sliding through the cut made on body panel. They were not very happy being operated that much.

Sorry for the late reply. Here's the first row of counter bores ready for bonding the magnets in. The I beams that come in the Vario kit aren't the smoothest... You may want to substitute them for a round pin. Less surface area to rub in the track and the radius won't hang up so easily.
