I am building the C750 Cruzer and am part way thru the first wing. The PDF instruction have you cut L brackets 330mm 390mm 384mm etc for wing bracing on the top and bottom skins. The drawing list these as C75-W8-# but I could not find them in the kit also I cannot find any other reference to these parts. I also see the some of the measurement are off a bit on the lengths of the braces. Has anyone else come across this?

I assume you are using the Photo Assembly Guide C75-WA-2 Revision 1.1 Dated 09/28/2016.

Please confirm the page referred to in your post ( # C75-W-8) since the plans only go to W-7.

The L angles referred to in the instructions are found on Cruzer plans page C75-WA-2. They are cut to slightly less than the spacing between the ribs.  You will need to fit them as required.

You can see a picture of several of them installed on the lower skin in the Top Picture on Page 13 of the instructions.  You can also find a picture of the Upper ones being referred to and riveted on the Top Picture on Page 15 of the instructions.

Hope this helps.

I am using Photo Assembly Guide C75-WA2 R1.1 09/28/2016. The drawings supplied with the kit are R1.1 12/2016. The is a page C75-W8 with the L bracket pre cut and labeled. From the picture I assume the brackets do not span over the rib flange but go up to the edge of the flange. Is this correct?

Oh, you have a newer set of plans, that explains things.  I have R1.0 plus the revisions that were published last year.

As far as the brackets, I also assume the same; that they do not overlap or span the rib flange.  In looking at the assembly order, this allows you to mount the brackets to the skin and then still install the skin over the skeleton.  If they overlapped, you would not be able to do this.

We are both learning something new today, Yeah!
