The text manual on page 85 details installing the brake system. In item 1, it says the fuse should be on the main gear. It must be assumed that the bolts holding the gear on are already installed. In item 9, it says to press the brake line into the groove in the aft side of the gear leg. Question------do I remove the aft bolt holding the gear in place, install the brake line in the groove then replace the bolt, or does the brake line go to the outside of the bolt??? The detail for the belly fairing (figure 08-01) does not show any clearance or hole to accommodate the brake line if it is not in the gear leg groove, only an opening to allow the gear leg itself. Guidance please.
Manual says to leave boot Cowl off till after painting! What is the purpose of this? Maybe for installing windscreen? Can you not just install everything and just mask the windscreen or is there something else you need the Cowl off for? Steve
In the S21 progress report # 27 there is talk of an Assembly Alert for using VHB tape to install the lexan to the door frames. However, when I search for the assembly alert -----no joy. My kit did include the VHB tape, but there are no instructions on where to use it. It does not look like there is enough to do the entire perimeter of the door and the center seams, so I am wondering if it is only for the center seam. Or, anywhere the lexan meets the door frame? Guidance please.
