Here are a couple customizations for consideration:
- canopy installation with sikaflex vs screws (research blogs - not trivial but very worth the effort)
- piano hinge attach of wing tips (functional and aesthetic improvement)
- cockpit lighting
- custom engine build may require custom exhaust and FWF and/or cowl modifications

If I were to do things over, I would try the wing tip piano hinge approach. It certainly looks cleaner.

Marvin did a nice job with it.

Aircraft Specialty fuel lines, brake lines, and FWF hoses. Makes build easier for fuel lines. I like the braided SS lines for brakes and the silicone coated FWF hoses. Plus the FWF hoses will be cut to fit depending on your engine setup.

Other options for wheels. I did not install, but thought about it.
