Hi All

If my research is correct, it would appear that there is a sort of "grey area" concerning the use of AS5 rivets. My finishing kit came with 103 AS5 rivets and I am going to spend the day looking for 103 holes in which to place these rivets. I am currently compiling a list of areas in which these rivets are to be used and upon completion will post the list for others to refer to. Please don't yell at me about not reading the plans...I do, it's just easy at times to overlook something. Maybe I am "simple minded" but there are times when it helps to be that way. As I have said many times, when endeavoring to take on a project of this magnitude, it is IMPOSSIBLE to have "too much information" 

If such data already exists, I apologize for using forum space and time...if anyone would like to provide a suggestion, I would be grateful. Any input would help with this list...no detailed info is needed, just comments such as rudder pedal, cabin frame, etc. I will do the "leg work".

Hi James

Yes, I could not find a callout for an AS5 in that area, but Jonathan Fay submitted to use AS5 there which makes sense to me. Thank you for this communication...it's what makes this group so fantastic!


Thanks Guys from the UK,  can you guess what I have been doing all night I hadn’t noticed that some were AS5, I should have the rest swapped over tomorrow this was posted just in time I got away with it by the skin of my teeth so close to it being a massive problem.
