In S-21 TECH QUESTIONS
The instructions say to pin the firewall to Station 1 with two 1/4" bolts... but none of the holes in the firewall are 1/4", they are all 3/16" -- and more confusing, it looks like the fuselage frame holes are 5/16". Before I drill something out and regret it, can someone confirm if we should be drilling 2 of the firewall holes to 1/4"?

In GENERAL TOPICS
I have my S-21 tail feathers built but nothing assembled yet, and it seems to me that painting those first makes a lot of sense so we don't have to disassemble and reassemble later. Could also balance the elevator if we paint now. Others tell me it will be impossible to keep the paint blemish-free after painting and to wait. Is there a consensus from those who have done this before? Has anyone used an automotive paint shop for at least base coats on parts? Is that worth considering?
