Sanded the plastic stabilizer tips to make edges flat.
By a reason I cannot understand the parts C75T1-11 tip rib do not have predrilled holes in my kit. The Assembly Manual assumes they should be.
I send an email to Zenith and talked to Roger on Oshkosh.
Yes, it is an error. The holes should be there. But instead of asking Zenith to fabricate and send me the new parts I decided to drill them. After all it is a part of fun.
I draw a 10mm line from the edge for rough positioning and used a laser level for a fine aligning.

Now I know the alignment is not perfect. The stabilizer end tips are now aligned for about 1/4 in. I suspect it is ok and nobody except myself will see any difference from two steps.
