As for formatting I will look to you building for what you think is the most logical solution. I was thinking the first column can be the section number/step number and then next column could be the description of what to watch out for. This way I can periodically, once a week or so, go into the document and reorder the steps so that it will be easy to find. This way when you are on your way out to work on a certain step you can you scroll to the area and see if there are any common problems. If we can all decide on a format here I will insert at the top the column headings and instructions for adding to the list.

Let me know if there is anything else I can do.

Default Possible Error?

Ok please correct me if I'm wrong, on page 06-04 step 4, you're told to dimple the flanges of all internal spars and ribs with the exception of VS-707? This makes no sense. Given the fact the plans tell you it dimple the VS-801 skin for 426 rivets. I think this may be a minor error?

Default Small Bag reference to plans sections?

I have looked at the spreadsheets and can't find a list that correlates the small bags to plans sections. I can't really tell by looking at plans and bag inventories if there is a one to one or one to two correlation.

Several other RV guys said empty the bags in to the tackle box divider trays, label the compartments and pick parts from there. Seems the common practice but I can't believe that a kit as well engineered as this isn't organized that one last step. I just can't find the documentation.

Information or opinions.

There is no correlation between the bags and the sections of the kit. The first bag you dip in might also be the same bag you pull from for the last section of that kit. One reason for this is that parts that look the same and are used on the same part are put into different bags so you can figure out which is which.

Default Bag correlation

Aha.... part of the 51% rule I suppose. The tedious hours sorting through things.

The tackle trays and baby food jars it is. Now I have something to do between getting my vertical stab deburred and my primer coming. Where was that label maker my wife had?

Thanks.

Default Addition to plan Gottchas

Step 7 on Page 08-02 asks to scuff the powder coating on the hinge brackets for HS. Step 3 on page 06-04 after "disassemble and deburr parts" should include " Scuff the powder coating on the hinge brackets if you plan to paint them". Being new builder I didn't do it for VS because there is no such step in the plans for VS. Now that they are riveted in place it will take extra time to get it done.

Question Pg 06-04 Dimpling Question - Emp. Fairing Attach Locations

Do you dimple the places in VS-704, VS-705 & VS-801PP where it says LEAVE OPEN FOR EMPENNAGE FAIRING ATTACH, 6 PLACES ON EACH SIDE OF ASSEMBLY? I put tape over the holes and left them alone, but I am about ready to rivet the VS together.

It's been a while but the emp fairing is made of glass and you countersink the glass. So those holes to attach it do not need dimpling.
