I am planning on going with the Lycoming M1B engine that Van's sells and Hartzell prop combo. I'll also be planning for the standard cowl (not Sam James). Standard brakes as well unless someone can really sell me on the price difference of the Beringer kits.
The only addons I can think of are the hinges for wingtips.
Thanks in advance everyone!
I didn't change much on the Finishing kit. Same engine and prop choice. Vans cowl.
Deleted brakes because I bought the Beringer kit. We can discuss it if you like.
No powder coat on any of the canopy weldments. I want them powder coated my color instead of adding a layer or sand basting the white off.
Substituted SC-15 canopy. UV rating is much higher and only a slight tint.

I cannot be, nor will I be, held responsible if you try to do the same things I do and it does not work and/or causes you loss, injury, or even death in the process.
