How's everyone handling the lower wing surface, where it appears the lower aileron pulley edge protrudes beyond the fabric siurface by 1/2" or so, in order for it to line up with the cable hole on the lower (longer) aileron bellcrank?

The upper one stays neatly inside the fabric, so only a hole in the fabric is required there.

Thanks in advance.

Yeah, that's normal. Both the aileron and flap pulleys stick out past the bottom of the fabric. You will later attach a plate around the hole to glue the fabric to.

I saw this on the Cornell Highlander at Oshkosh - am planning to copy.  The part is from Wag Aero - though could be made if you are a fiberglass wizard.

Just what's needed! I went to Wag Aero online, but no joy. Do you know what the product is called?

Dave, here is the catolog #'s for the Wag Aero pulley covers: Std size: M-147-000 , and Small size: M-148-000.  Order a catalog from them, it's much easier to find stuff then their website.

I really like that clean look much better.  Will be looking in to getting my friend to possibly make some up.
