Support Jon Croke's hard work for the community.
That;s too easy! I was hoping to find one that's already been viewed. But you're right, if nothing else pops up in a little while, I'll get one from him. And just to let you know, if I do start the kit, I fully intend to buy his entire library. Thanks.
I can't speak for him, but I'm almost certain that if you contact Jon Croke, who produces and sells the Homebuilt HELP DVD's, he could provide what you're looking for. Just a FYI: in general, the Zenith.aero members have discouraged buying and selling these popular DVD's from other than Jon. He tirelessly produces these and provides free "Tip of the Week" videos and is a great resource to Zenith builders. Therefore, most encourage supporting Jon's efforts by purchasing the DVD's from him and not reselling them.

Oops! I just saw above that Michael expressed the same sentiment! Thanks, Michael!
I have NO affiliation with HomeBuiltHelp nor do I know Jon personally, but I enthusiastically second the sentiment – I’ve purchased several complete sets of Jon’s DVDs (for just about everything Zenith builds) and the “how-to-do-it” nuggets stuffed into those DVDs are invaluable – and at least in my case, have had some application outside the Zenith line. I have many hundreds of hours watching them (have a small DVD player I can use during my commuter train trips), and will review the applicable 10-15 minute portions before heading to the shop – at least for me, helps me focus my geriatric noodle because my shop time is so dear.
BTW, Jon’s delivery time usually rivals Amazon…
I think you'll appreciate them -- like any good tool, once it is in your tool box you may feel ill equipped without them... (at least for non-A&P weekend hobbyists like me).
If you are looking for videos that will give you an idea of "what you are getting into", Zenith has a number of videos that are actually pretty detailed. Many other builders have posted thousands of photos and hundreds of videos. With enough digging around, one can find almost enough free info to practically build the plane!
