    C5, Thanks, but it will be late this fall at the earliest before I make first flight. Got to rebuild my engine and install the panel yet. Thanks for the future use of your strip, looking forward to it. Be sure to send my your GPS coordinates sometime.
    Thanks

    Status update: Got the door latches, window latches, window hangers and windshield installed. Put down some matt black vinyl on the dash too to help with glare. Will be working on panel, flaps and turtle deck while I wait on my engine parts to get checked out. I just hit the 600 hour mark, so if anyone wonders how long it takes.. Still a ways to go...............

    Laurent,
     
    I think these are 5 gallon each. Fiberglass construction. I have read various opinions on ethanol use, and I think general opinion is no. They are very lightweight and I have no idea about the Catalina. These are designed to be epoxied between front and rear spars on the magnum wing. Let me know if you want measurements.
