"L" angle extrusion in our Zenith airplanes.

Thought I would start a new thread on his subject as I didn't want to polute the question previously asked about suitable extrusion and I saw a response to my post that was both incorrect and incomplete and which I consider to be a safety issue.. I have no bone to pick with anyone here but when mis-information is posted as fact or out of context it needs to be corrected. My experience is with the 701 and I am using that as a reference. This is my opinions backed up by the math and common sense,…See More
