Exclamation Wrong nutplates

Heads up. I found an error that had me scratching my head for a bit. I zipped thru 10-20 and riveted in all the nutplates. Then when I got to 10-28, I couldnít get the vertical stabilizer to fit between the aft nutplates. After much investigating, I realized the nutplates I installed were K1000-08 instead of -06. The longer length prevented the vertical stabilizer from fitting. Looks like bag 3036 has the wrong nutplates. Not sure if other bag 3036ís have the mistake. Double check before you start riveting them in!

There is a page in section 5 that has full sized drawings of all the fasteners. I often referred to it even in year 5 of my build. I should have just copied it and had it out with my other reference docs.
