Copy that... my bad. It was thirty + years ago! LOL. I musta forgot.
Yeah, it was heavier than a two-by-four. Two-by- six, or maybe a two-by ten? In all fairness I did add a landing wheel to it. It would roll like hell down the golf coarse fairway where I flew. Even in the early beginnings of my building career I couldn't build them stock...
Also I don't think I knew anything about CofG back in those days... I'm sure it was over-Leaded.
