Default Notches?? What notches?

I'm looking through my revisions and can't find the reference you mention to notch the cover ribs. I'm well past that stage anyway but I don't like the thought that I've missed something. I'll be installing my harness soon.

Default Fuselage harness and micro molex

If you still have access, notch them a little bigger than the plans suggest. I notched mine per the plans and the connectors would not go through. My fuselage was complete when I got the harness last July and it was a pain to enlarge the notches in place.

I wouldn't try removing the pins from the micro Molex connector. Micro Molex pins can be removed with a removal tool but, according to Molex, the pins are no longer good and you need to put on new pins.

Default Cover rib panel drawing

The drawing on page 28-11 figure 2 incorrectly shows the F-01435A panel's top flange resting on top of the cover ribs. All other drawings in various chapters show correctly the flange tucked under the top flanges of the cover ribs.

Which kit contains the main harness you are referring to? Finish?

I was referring to the Main Wire Harness 14/14A Kit, Van's part number ES WH-00125 KIT, which is an option. It is not included in any kit. If you are going to order it, order it with the fuselage kit so that you can install it as you build the fuselage.

It is not too hard to install after the fuselage is assembled but it will be a lot easier to install while building. I was very disappointed that it did not come standard with the fuselage kit as the wiring did for the wings and empennage.

On the download page, there is a drawing of the harness and it is detailed enough that you could make your own that would interface with the wing and empennage harnesses.

Default 38-26, Step 3. Breaking Canopy Frame Skin Slot Edges

38-26, Step 6 - calls for breaking the lower edges of the slot that the front lower corners of the canopy slide in to (shown in Figure 1).

This is hard to do at this stage without buggering-up the glare shield because it is hard to get to. Do this edge breaking before you get to this stage, maybe back around page 38-20 before you are handling the canopy plexiglas and have got a nice paint finish on your glare shield.

Had painted the canopy frame glare shield skin twice, nice finish; and the back frame arch C-01405 was painted. Moving the plexiglas around to get it far enough away from the edges that needed breaking.
