posting report #56 shows how I added the least amount of weight for balance by bolting the lead bar as far foreward as I could. The weight amount changed from 14oz inside the firewall area to the foreward inside cowl area I think it was to about 4 oz or close to it. Saving was about 8 to 10 oz in any case. Mounting can be easily changed for fine tuning.

After balancing was set I clipped off the excess bolts. I think I also used 100mm for CofG and seemed to be right on and am happy with landing performance.
