    And should I overlap the rubber or butt it together? FF33 shows a contiguous piece.

    Jake,

    You are missing a piece. I was missing the same thing. Call Mitch and he will send it out. I glued/sealed mine and if I remember correctly I overlapped them slightly at the bottom.

    This is the best photo I have of the seals. I overlapped them on both seams between upper and lower plenum halves. Used weather strip adhesive and clamped it down to set up. This allows you to remove the plenum with the seals still attached, only have to remove the clamps.

    Thanks, I am guessing that's what the one photo was trying to show in drop box. A short paragraph and a pic or two should be added to the manual. As a first time builder and non-A&P, I need all the help I can get.

    Jake,

    I'm right there with you. This was my first build as well. It seemed that the further along I got in the build the more interpretation some steps take. Keep up the momentum and you'll be flying before you know it!
