Still have to drill holes in the main spar for the skin but that's for next time. All holes deburred also !

Makes sense. I have incorporated some of the 750 stuff in my 701 as well. 

Thanks for the reply.

Hi Perry,
Zenith didn't change the design of their wing skins for the 701. I however modified them
so that the fuel cells could be removed somewhat easily by splitting the skin on top of the fuel
cell. This is a modification warranted by past experience... Also, I got the CH750 plans that
call for this type of arrangement.

Anything that holds liquid will eventually LEAK... Make sure you can access the culprit without
too much pain. This is one such mod.

Hi Normand,

Did you change the design of the wing skin to have a removable section over the fuel tank, like the 750? Or did Zenith update the design?
