Good luck with your project. It goes fast building as a kit, most of the holes are drilled to final size. Fitting the struts later today. Where are you located? In San Angelo, TX at Ducote Air Park. Will be going to the Rio Grande Valley for a few months this winter - hanger is unheated.
I was building a STOL 750 from plans. The fuselage was about 95% completed and I decided to retro-fit it to a Cruizer. The most difficult changes will be to to replace the 2 HT frames. Expect I will be removing the two rear side skins to gain access here.
