new style BVM F-86 questions

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Those that have a new one I have a couple questions, and would love some pics of how they did these things.

first, the sheet metal piece that has to be bent around the tailpipe and then screwed to the rear of the fuse, can someone get me a pic of how they have theirs installed. Mine ripped on both sides when trying to bend it up to the fuse to screw it down.

second, the bypass mount, both of my main gear wheels hit the side bypass mounts, and we had to grind them pretty much all the way off to get the wheels to go into the fuse enough to get the doors to go flush with the fuse. This one is getting a Jetcat P80.

Hi John, Although not a BVM My Fiber Classics F86 had similar issues to be sorted.... First re-tail pipe defelector, I had Tam make me one up when he did my pipe so if you like give him a call and he can make one up for you 'No Worries'
I took the bypass out altogether of my F/C F86 as it just looked to small for my TJT-3000 and I fitted a home made FOD trap to turbine cowl for piece of mind... The FOD trap will save any retracted wheel debris being injested of course and the now exposed wheel well openings in my F86 would of 'Hoovered' up all the ground muck! a FOD trap is your simple solution I reckon

Just my 2c

Thanks, Id still love to see some pics of the tail area and how others have put theirs on. BVM told me on the phone that their demo sabre does not fit perfect on the deflector, but all the pics I see of it it sure looks good to me.

I will be running the bypass, so removing it is not an option for me, like to see how others got the wheels to clear the P80 setup.
