Perhaps the clips are not necessary and not intended if strict sb steps are followed, therefore the inconsistent amount of clips supplied - as in not really needed. Question I don’t want to hassle with the turnbuckles if the HS horn cable disconnection step in the sb is practical. Specifically, what makes one chose one way to deal with the cables or the other. I’m waiting on parts just trying to understand others comments and make best choices. Thanks! Doug in IL
Doug, I dont see that you got an answer to your questions. The removal and reinstallation of the HS can be a little tricky if you havent done it before. It is pretty hard to describe in text. I would be glad to try and help you if you want to give me a call at 518-774-4898. John

Thank you Big John and all others willing to help non-builders keep all those fuselage placards shinny.
