Clips rivet to the airframe, and have nut plates that are used to attach fairings. A few screws and these come off for inspections. Clearances have been opened up to allow rubber chafe protection between fairings and skins. Holes in bottom allow for water drainage.

Stop by S67 (Nampa) and pick me up. We can fly up to Garden Valley (U88) to check out the plane! We'll put you up so no need for hotel or anything!
Just give me a day or two of notice so I can let my wife know so we don't have to sleep on couches!
I sure would love to get some stick time in the 801 again. Last 801 flight was when we picked up the kit in Mexico... seems like a long time ago.
