Shoulder harness

Does anyone have a suggestion on the best way to carve a slot in the former over the rear spar carrythrough for the harness strap without nicking the square tube? Headliner is in place and zipper is about six inches behind spar.

Re: Terrible Transmission above Idle

Griphos, Definitely get the intercom out of the circuit before you try anything else. Generally ignition noise is heard while receiving. Also check very carefully before you put a P-lead filter on a Slick mag. I believe there is a feed through capacitor in the mag and adding another is not good. Pau...
