You can see the "C" pieces between the G-25's in this pic.

Shannon is right. Installing these "C" channels will greatly help.

When building from the start which I was able to do, this is how I did mine. I fabricated new ends.

Glad to have the pics to reference, I can see how either way will work. thanks guys I'll play around and see how many rivets I have left, sorry Don I'll stick with the fabric for now as I'm not up on fibre glass methods and haven't done any before. Thanks again.

That 's Ok Wayne for all the reasons Dave, Shannon and George gave and not to mention the just plain nice appearance is why I didn't use them. Good luck with your build.

George ,
I think I will go with your method as it provides a clean line and neat edge to apply the tapes/glue to.
Putting the G25 under the ASI is going to act like a large bracket that strengthens the whole area. I presume you have left those corner brackets in ? (can't see the lower one)
I noticed that you put a foam tape on the edge of the G25, and a cap strip between the tape and fabric.
Its all very neat and clean, I like it.
How did you get the 'wave' in the cap strips and did you do that to all of the cap strips?

where can I get some Lazair decals as I don't seem to have any?

a few dudes here can make you lazair decals. if nobody pans out for you, i have a shop that can make cut vinyl decals of the lazair logo. i think they make them for $50 each? i really can't remember though, been a few years.
