    Yes. My assembly manual calls them nose ribs.

    Yeah, I've got 3 or 4 broken ones. Haven't got that far yet.

    Nose ribs
    Just noticed that the nose ribs on my wings are about 1/8" taller than the other ribs. Do they have to be sanded down? Lot of sanding.

    Turtle deck

    New fuel tanks
    The kit I bought came with new tanks, supposed to be  ethanol safe. Same amber color as fiberglass, but doesn't seem to have the cloth texture, very smooth.  I've decided to go ahead and put them in now. My question is what adhesive is used to glue them to the aluminum spars?  It's a pretty gappy fit, would take a lot of expensive epoxy. I read through some posts on this site and saw one or two mentions of silicone. Is that a good choice? What type of silicone?

    Glue on ribs
    I'm making a new rib to replace one that was damaged in storage, I suppose. Anybody know what glue they used to build the ribs? Clear, brownish glue, not the gray stuff. Thanks

    Thanks everybody for your responses. I've had the project a couple of weeks, plus semester finals and I got sick, so I haven't spent much time with the manuals. Hopefully I'll have a bit more time over the break.

    New member, new project. Flaperon linkage question
    Hi all. I'm new to this group. I bought a MK IV unfinished kit a couple of weeks ago. I'm sure I'll have a lot of questions. I'm in A&P school and have my Airframe cert. Looking forward to getting to know some of you. I'm in Southern Idaho, by the way. One quick question. The linkage for the flaperon lever drags on the bottom of the seat. (Actually, it pushes up against the seat when you push the lever down). Also, the tube is bent in a curve downward. I've adjusted the seat a bit by loosening and tightening the tie cords, but it still drags. Is the control lever supposed to snap over center when pushed down, or is it just held in place by the friction device? Any suggestions? My seat is a padded sling type. I assume it came with the kit. I'm not home right now, so I don't have any pics. Thanks.
