If you are having issues gaining access or editing the spreadsheets please leave a comment in this thread and I will solve the problem. Thanks

Common traps and mistakes:https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...FE&usp=sharing

Inventory sheets:https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...Xc&usp=sharing

All inventory lists that I have available are on the above link. Please see the tabs towards the bottom of the page to switch between different kits.

Thank you to user jswareiv for the empennage kit, user Marabou for the wing kit, and user GeraldC for bringing the wing kit spread sheet to my attention.

Done, great idea by the way.

Feel free to start populating this guys. I don't have my empennage kit yet so unfortunately I have nothing else to contribute at this point.

Thanks Mike for getting this...um stuck. :)

Great idea! As a first time builder (kits not even in the mail yet) I would reallllyyy not learn the hard way EVERY time!

Cheers

I've broken the ice. I'm quite literate with Office products for years but not with "online" services so I'm not sure if what I've done is okay. Since the page was blank with no headers, I took the liberty of naming these as I think is appropriate and consistent with what you have suggested in the first place.

I look forward to see inputs from other contributors. !! :D

Thanks for sharing looks like a great idea Jerry

Excellent!
 
Marc, thanks for making the first entries! My wing kit sits on the floor as I finish getting the shop ready but I have already marked up my instructions with your comments. While the trailblazers found out the hard way, the rest that follow really appreciate documentation of these areas to avoid the same costly mistakes. I'm sure I'll make many but knowing about the landmines ahead of time certainly is the best way to avoid them.

And thank you Jim for setting up the spreadsheet!

Thank you Marc for getting us going. The idea of adding VAF reference links is perfect! I only changed one thing. I added the Kit before your page numbers. This will help with sorting later down the road when we have Empennage, Fuselage, and Finishing kits all going on as well.

I received a reply from Ken @ Vans that there was an error on page 09-15 about scuffing under the E-1008 ribs. Since no bonding is required in this area scuffing is not required. Only the areas where bonding will occur need scuffing. I've added this to the Gotchas list.

Just placed another small tip on the list for the VS.
