This is the install pictures of a Stene Aero Sportsman S.T.O.L. kit . And while we were doing that we installed a flap gap seal kit from Knots2U and installed four new Lycoming cylinders. Remade some of the engine baffels.

The foam nose ribs came pre made . We cut out templet locators using paper templet's that came with the kit and the top of the crate it was packaged in.

The nose ribs are attached using black RTV  and heald in place with masking tape till the RTV cured 24 hours.

One thing the instructions didn't tell you to do was to replace some round head rivets with countersink rivets so the new skins wound lay flush . I guess it was though of as common sense .

The left wing took the most time due to the stall horn and landing light .

Wing tips fit up well without much fuss.

The STOL kit install instructions were just ok . The kit itself is well thought out and fits very good. Without any paint touch up it took about 50 hours from start to finnish. The Knots2U flap gap kit took about 10 hours to install.
