FYI... I'm going to retrofit a CG Tost G88 tow release into my Discus 2A and looking for others who may have had this experience.

What sunglasses are best for flying gliders? by Jonathan Foster
A couple of weeks ago I purchased a fairly cheap pair of sunglasses. When I put them on in my glider all of my instruments magically went black. Unbeknownst to me, the lenses are polarized. Are there any sunglasses that seem to work really well for flying?

Anyone know where I can get some of the T35 gelcoat here in the states that DG finished my LS-10 with? I am told there are alternatives but would really rather use the original stuff if I could get it. Thanks, John Bojack

Cobra Trailer lights converting to 4-way flat--Help by Retting
Got a new Cobra with a 7-blade. My vehicles use 4-way flat. I was initially going to cut and install a 4way on the trailer, but hate to cut brand new plus thought if I install a combi on the vehicle I could tow others if a need arise. So, I find a vehicle combi at Lowe's, connect everything and...

air extractor for asw19 and asw20 by [email protected]
I just installed a very cool - pun intended - air extractor in my ASW19. Its a nifty device that replaces that little hatch cover where the control connections are. My guess is that it was made on a 3D printer. Anyway, I couldn’t believe how well it worked and so I’m putting a shameless...

On the side of the AL-KO 2" coupler on my Cobra trailer there is a "keyhole" shaped hole. What is it for? It sure looks like some type of locking mechanism but no one seems to know what it is for. The coupler is marked "CL4 2" AL-KO Elkhart, IN). I contacted AL-KO in the UK and they directed me...
