  • 03/14/2003 – Took pictures of kit.
  • 03/15/2003 – Scanned plans and took more pictures. Tied elastic shock cord and Kevlar cord together about 1″ from the end of each cord with a knot. Tied Kevlar end to motor housing. Cemented motor housing halves after installing gray motor mount tube. Applied plastic cement inside each of longer body tube and inserted motor housing assembly. Test fit all four fins and fin locking ring into motor housing. Removed ring and fins and then cemented them in place. Cemented coupler base into coupler and then cemented the other end of coupler into smaller body tube. Applied grippers to 14″ parachute corners. Tied shroud lines to the chutes then looped a snap swivel onto the end o the shroud lines with the help of a line. Tied shroud lines to second parachute and looped a snap swivel onto the end.
