    Looks good. I try to stay away from small hard rods when checking my C/G. When checking your C/G on a rod, you have a few pounds of weight sitting on a very small and sharp edge (your sponson) and if you are not super careful it can chip your edges. I prefer to use large wooden dowels such as 5/8 to 3/4 diameter (Lowes or Home Depot). You can still chip the edges but not quite as easily. 7-1/4 is a great base line C/G for stock 3.5 engines on a Lynx. You may tweak that slightly after running it but probably not by much. One more thing, I would turn those tanks around so that you can keep your fuel lines as short as possible. Reconfigure your pickup lines to pull fuel out of the lower-rear-port side of your tanks.

    Did you have to use any weight in the bow to get the correct C/G?

    Finally after 2 months of dealing with a blown up compressor, lost paint shipment, and crappy weather. I was able to spray the 1st base-coat color on today. After this coat cures I pull the tape and lay out the strips then apply the graphic's and then Clear coat. My old eye's wont have any trouble seeing this puppy in all the roster-tails. Ever notice that the only fly in the shop is attracted to wet paint luckily he didn't land
