So if there are any discrepancies with that list it HAS to be the fault of the AMA? I mean the FAA is a Federal agency, they NEVER make mistakes right? I recently joined TWO clubs here in Oregon,...

That is a Cap 232 not an Edge. I can't tell what kit it is. Maybe some pictures of the inside will give some clues.

Dave, sand the edges of the break a little first. The tears will not completely mesh back together unless you remove a tiny bit. Once you glue back together with CA tape the outside for some added...
