Default Cessna 182

Hi Danny,
A friend and I are going to start building the Cessna 182 this weekend; we have a couple of questions. We are putting in a G26.
1. What size spinner should we use?
2. What size prop should we use?
3. Is the tank stopper that came with the fuel tank good to use with Gas?
4. What is the best way to get the wrinkles out of the fuselage?
Thank you,

1. The cessna uses a 3 1/4" spinner.
2. I would use between a 16x6 to a 16x8 with a G-26.
3. Yes, the stopper is for either gas or glow.
4. You can get any wrinkles out with a covering iron and/or a heat gun, using care to not overheat the stripping, and not rolling an iron or glove against the edges of the stripping. There is a great article here with information on ultracote application that may assist you as well. http://horizon.hobbyshopnow.com/Prod...X/1115-ART.asp
