Nose Gear Brace Mod
By: Jim Hayward

I used some 3/8" steel rod to brace the nose gear against sideloads. A piece of thin walled steel pipe was cut lengthwise then lightly hammering it on the concrete floor until it opened up enough to fit over the aluminum crossmember. The two pieces were then clamped in place near the ends of the aluminum tube and the 3/8" rod tack welded in place. The whole assembly was then removed, welded, and reinstalled.
