ratchet v buckle straps

I used buckle straps during skin installation on the stabilizer. I found them much easier to set up and they were half the price of ratchet straps as well. I thought I just share that in case sombody else dosen't like ratchets.

Safety wire/pin?

I just installed the 750's rear bracket on the horizontal stabiliser, which requires two bolts as well as rivets. There is no mention on any safety wire or pin through the nut or the tip of the bolt. Is this correct or am I missing something. I don't want to rivet on the skins and then discover that I missed it. Any advice is welcome. Regards from Ireland.

Small step

I just completed my 750's rudder skeleton. Yesterday it was inspected and approved by a very experienced builder - happy day :-)
This is only my first post, greetings to everyone from Ireland. This is only a start of a big adventure for me.
