Jim great advice on the training, etc... What size tubing and fittings did you use for fuel lines inside the cabin?

Thanks Jim,

And yes, I will have  seperate fuel lines to the selector so i can control it better.

Your build is coming along just fine I can see.

From your comments I'd say that it has done you well to be watching the others so closely. Very good observation on the lift struts. I missed that on my first one.


I am actually opening a new builder assist center here in Mexico near the Zenith factory. Hoping to be able to show some others some of those things which you have already figured out.


If you are ever in the area, be sure to stop by for a visit.
