Zenith 750 Cruzer These are the L mounts for the bottom of the vert stab.

The reason these have a V cut in the bottom is so that I could slightly bend them to fit the curve of the vertical stab.

Notice the side holes are dimpled so that the fairing will sit flush.

These are currently only temporarily installed so that I can hold the vert stab in place and make the fairing. That is why you only see one rivet installed. Once the fairing is complete, I will drill out these rivets to remove the vertical stab for painting. (then I will dimple the other holes)

   
Zenith 750 Cruzer Notice I've used flush rivets so that the fairing will fit nicely.
   
Zenith 750 Cruzer I'm looking for little things I can finish up so I riveted and screwed on this bottom plate. Notice I've used round head screws here instead of the "draggy" regular screws.

20 years as an F-16 mechanic paid off with lots of good hardware and clamps and other useful stuff. And of course having F-16 hardware on my Cruzer automatically makes it faster.

Zenith 750 Cruzer I made a paper template and then cut the new blue carpet.
   
Zenith 750 Cruzer It fits great!
   
Zenith 750 Cruzer I'm starting to run some wires. This is the firewall and the cables from the UL Power 350iS ECU.

Zenith 750 Cruzer Taping off the area in the back for the custom fiberglass fairing. The resin will not stick to duct tape-that why it's covered in duct tape.
