Online Community of Zenith Builders and Flyers
Took about two weeks from ordering to receipt. Prepped and painted all 120 of them - ready to install this weekend.

Though I don't think UV exposure will be an issue for my situation (Northeast part of the country and hangared) I figured it would never be an easier time to paint them then before install.
John - So far my flying without slats shows an honest 6 knot increase at cruise setting...I like that plus shedding 16 lbs and getting lowered stall speeds with VGs.
Bob - I can see that without the slats "protecting" the leading edge I could easily drag the fuel hose across the VGs. Good reminder/"head up"
I had Stolspeed VG on the CH601HD. Best $150 ever spent. Used them in clear unpainted version. Never lost any, but watch the fuel hose or gas can around them.
