Default Great planes float kit Alpha 40

Good day,

I am trying to mount a set of great planes fiberglass floats on an alpha 40 and the nose sits too low. I believe I saw a similar post somewhere on this Site where someone modified the wires to give an appropriate incidence angle. I was wondering if anyone who has mounted these floats on a tri-gear aircraft could lend some advice?

Thanks

Take a few pictures of the floats and plane with the step in the correct location (+or- 1/2" from center cg). It will be easier for people to give you ideas. I assume you are trying to use the strut wires in the stock "cub" configuration.
