    You're talking about aluminum trailing edge material?

    Next question. Where can I find the streamlined wood pieces for the wing struts? I've struck out.

    Reading up on the Cherry page in the Spruce catalog. The second number is not the length of the rivet. It's the maximum grip length. Thanks for the assistance everybody.

    Didn't know there was a code for blind rivets. Thanks. So AA44F would probably be aluminum 1/8" x 1/4"?

    More questions. Manual says use SS43FS and  AA44F rivets on the trim tab. Spruce doesn't list either one. Are there replacement numbers? What are you guys using?

    I'm getting ready to wrap the tanks with fiberglass. The new tanks came with my kit and I don't have any info on what they're made of. Just trying to decide what kind of resin to order.
