I would rather go to jail than strip the paint off even a model airplane

How about stripping it and buffing it, and loosing enough paint to more or less equal the weight of the upgrade kit, in the process? Not to mention the paint moves the CG aft, and most Zeniths are too pitch sensitive and aft CG'd to begin with........
