    Airworthiness inspections
    What is your experience with DAR's? Did they want to see the build in stages? Do they want to supervise the build? Or just one inspection after completion?

    Turtlr deck
    Dumb question maybe. What is the camlock in the middle of the turtle deck for? Nothing there to attach to.

    My kit was missing the turtle deck parts. Anybody have good pics from various sides and angles? I do have the bearing pieces and fairings.

    Thanks. If it's factory, I'll leave them and check often if I ever get in the air

    Rivets on flaperon horn
    Is this factory? Can't find anything in the manual. Not sure I'm comfortable with pop rivets in a primary control linkage.

    Wash fabric?
    I did a bit of covering work last winter, which I then wrapped and covered,but quite a bit of dust got in anyway. Pretty windy here.  Would it be ok to wash with soap and water and rinse it before I put on the Poly brush?

    Seems like I remember seeing a complete package for a cub on Spruce. Had something like 11 gal of poly brush. Can't find it now.

    Poly brush
    Used about 3 qt. Poly brush on 1 wing. 2 brush coats, tapes and 3 spray coats. Sound about right?

    Tape on fiberglass wingtip?
    Do any of you guys put finishing tape on this  part of the fiberglass wingtip where the fabric rubs?

    Broken nose rib
    What do you guys do if one of those little nose rib tails breaks off in a wing? Fly with it that way?

    Gluing to ribs
    I'm sure this has been discussed before, but I can't find it. Seems to be a conflict between the Poly Fiber manual and the Avid manual on gluing fabric to the ribs. Avid says glue to bare wood, PF says put down reinforcing tape and don't glue. Course I don't know how to attach fabric to an undercambered wing without gluing. I do intend to lace the ribs. Any thoughts or advice? Photos would be much appreciated.
