A suggestion for new builders.

When I started my build I knew I would be making plenty of mistakes and I was determined to try and learn from the mistakes of others . I spent hours researching this forum and taking notes about the things others had done that helped with their build.

I was amazed at how much info. was available and I reference my notes often.

Thank You to the "others" that post these useful tips and tricks. You will never know how many of us you have helped.

Ditto- lots of valuable help here! But I must admit, after resisting for several months I went all in and bought the entire set of Homebuilt Help DVDs (a discount is available if you buy the entire set at once) and it has been the best decision I've made yet.  The Zenith build instructions are good, and the factory drawings really help, but I'm a visual person and there's nothing like watching it done on a video before you go out and start drilling and cutting.

Nice, can't wait to see your backyard strip, another destination!

Could not agree more. Those DVDs are a must have.
