Ski Cubbie

I had planned to do this last year but there was so much snow that the parking lot at the field has, no  exaggeration, 5-6 feet of unplowed snow in it, so I flew almost nothing all winter. So far this year not so much.

I put Dubro Park Flier skis on her. The springs don't fit her axle, so I had to McGyver some wire. I also had to make a tail ski from soda bottle plastic. Why one is not included I have no idea. These are thin press formed plastic, maybe even vacu-formed. Not solid at all, but certainly stuff enough to do the job, but if they rip I won't be surprised.

I put some tape over the bottoms to keep snow from filling the space.

Now, if I can just get off this couch...
