    Actually I had been considering modifying the rudder pedals to help keep my feet in the right spot.

    Few pics
    Thought I'd show a couple of things I've been working on. Fuselage rotator for covering and a baggage pouch made of covering fabric. Pouch has sewn in aluminum tubes that will be strapped to frame tubing. I was thinking of getting backpack or tent material, but then thought of the covering. Seems extremely tough. Any thoughts? Also a couple of pieces I have started covering. I will be reinforcing the landing gear truss this week before I start covering the fuselage.

    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"?

    Rivets
    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?
