  For anyone interested
I have the Ray Williams spring gear conversion. It's working well. Basically 
as the gear formed and makes a square tube frame that bolts to the existing 
landing gear attachment points then the gear clamps to the bracket. The main 
advantage is you do not have to weld the fuselage. If the airplane is tore 
apart now
it just as easy to weld in whats needed.

But don't expect Ray to build you one right away. You will have to wait until 
is ready to do it.
