More construction comments: I substituted a Du-Bro 8-oz tank, same volume as stock but a little lower and longer, so it doesn't require a panel cutout. I think I'll put the fuel dot in the cowling.

I'm putting the ignition module above the tank & behind the panel, IBEC under the tank pod, switch and IBEC light just in front of the windshield.

There are 6 control horns, all punched from phenolic sheet to be epoxied into slots. There are four different sizes, and the manual offers several opportunities to mix them up.

Two illustrations in the section on landing gear installation are out of sequence. The gear strut spreader is bolted to the strut mounting brackets in a space that's almost a quarter inch wider than the spreader arm -- needs to be spaced with a stack of washers.
