Wanted a sprit for the asym. Liked the selden one. loved the Trogear one. But $1700 not so much. Then I found this fitting on the inter-web which looks like it might be the forward end of the Trogear Sprit.
I purchased 2" CF Tubes on eBay. I'm about to form the attachment ends. I gotta plan for those. Might make one out of solid rod of delrin and use it to make a mold. Bought a yard of CF fabric.....
I purchased the "U" brackets to be attached to the anchor roller. Bought a solid rod of delrin to mill into the bushing for the forward fitting. Trogear uses titanium. If I can finish this for under $400 I'll be happy.
So far with the "U" brackets I'm in about $250.
I bought 3 of the forward fittings.... incase.
I'll post updates.
I had to sand the male ends of the forward fitting to fit the tubes. 'bout .5 mm. CF dust is bad news. I wore full face respirator and all the garb. I looked like Hans solo in Empire Strikes Back.
