    Default Tank skin scuffing skylight.

    I got 100hrs on the cub now and noticed the tank skin digging into the skylight. The two surface would be moving against one an other. I added a rubber "U" to the skin edge. This should stop the wear. Just figured I would post if others wanted to do it before they finish building.

    Good tip

    Where did you source the rubber "U"? McMaster Carr?
