Keep at it! Make yourself into a "Gram Saver" so you can achieve the target. I always feel when I give myself permission to do a little extra this or that, I miss my weight targets. But if I really go nuts on trying to best my mark I only get a little chubby on final weight in I have no idea but I suspect this happens to all of us. I have a feeling most kit "weight ranges" (when most people actually used to build kits) were actually what you could achieve reasonably minus 5 percent just to get you to try to keep it light!!

I got a BIG box in the mail today Kieth just sent me the entire pull, so I will mail Brents canopy and the plugs back to Brent Monday.

They turned out SUPER nice. This is the first time I saw the plugs Brent made and they are a work of art. Soooo smooth. He gave Kieth at Parkflyer Plastics a great plug to work with and Kieth worked his magic and pulled us some georgous canopys.

I got three sets of canopys and a fouth front pilots canopy that Kieth didn't like as he wrote on it too thin but included it in the package anyway..Too thin maybe for a pro like Kieth but I can still use it as a spare if I need it

GREAT WORK you two. Hats off to Brent and Kieth...two master builders for sure.

Once they are installed it should be "The Cat's Meow". Pun intended!

Trying to get a visual on how I want to apprach this install.

It was nice Kieth put the defective pull in the box, it gives me a practice piece so to speak before I mess with the pull I will use..I use the word defective lightly.

Still not sure if I will go with manual opening canopys or not. ..

I still cant get over the plugs Corsair Nut made..skills
