Recently I purchased a starduster too. I have some questions for those of you out there with some experience.
One problem is the fuel system, need some info on installing a flop tube. The tank has a bottom header tank incorporated into the main, would like to install a flop tube in the header tank.Wondering if the flop tube will flake off the sealant if the end lays on the bottom, or will it be abrasive to the aluminum? I currently have the tank out of the airplane.
Also does anyone know about installing a canopy?

Mike,
Go back to the main forum menu and scroll down to the Starduster - Acroduster forum. Your question is sure to be read by all the Starduster guys if posted there, although some may notice it here as I did.. I am a Starduster Builder, and I have a flop tube in my main tank, however, I have no idea about the posibility of flaking off the sealant. There are several more experienced guys on that bulletin board. You will enjoy the group!
Dave
