    I have a 1991 Kitfox IV with a max gross weight of 1050 lbs. I need to upgrade to 1200 lbs. to accomodate a larger engine and a larger me. I have heard that the conversion is rather simple but Skystar will not help me at all. They want to sell me a new one of course. Do any of you out there know what I need to do?

    Do you mean it is structurally sound enough as is to carry the extra weight?
