I'll be finishing up on the welding of the fuselage soon and wanted to plan ahead a little.

Can we get a list of where most builders are using mounting tabs ? Maybe list how an item will attach to it also; nut and bolt, nut plate, safety wire, etc.

Jim mentioned, crotch strap attachment, brake lines, floor boards, ground wire for engine mount, mounting the cowl.

Nick mentioned stand-offs

- crotch strap attachment
-brake lines
-floor boards
-ground wire for engine mount
-mounting the cowling
- stand-offs
- Instrument panel ?
- battery box ?
- brake lines ?

Where else would we use them ?
