     Upon receiving your Quickie kit, you should immediately match the packing list in each box against the actual contents of each box. Any descrepancies should be reported immediately to the appropriate vendor(e.g. Aircraft Spruce, etc.) We can not be responsible for shortages that go unreported for longer than 5 days after receipt of the materials.
     QAC maintains a close liaison with Quickie subcontractors to assure proper materials specification and quality control. Do not make substitutions for the materials provided. The materials provided were selected, developed, tested, and optimized for ease of construction and structural integrity. If you insist on making non-approved substitutions for replacement and spoilage, we insist that you do not call your aircraft a Quickie. QAC will not provide assistance in the application of substitute materials or components.
     In addition to the materials provided in the kit, you will have to furnish a few ltems that are readily available locally. We do this to save you some money. These items are as follows:

  • 2" x 2" piece of aluminum screen door screen.
  • 10" length of l/4" diam. wood dowell material.
  • Masonite or aircraft quality plywood for templates.
  • Lumber for a workbench and jigging.
  • Finishing Materials; Dupont 70S dark gray laquer primer surfacer, Acrylic laquer paint ln the color of your choice(see Chapter 19), and Silicon Carbide or Aluminum Oxide type sandpaper in Coarse (36,40, or 60), medium (100 to 150), and fine (220 to 320).

     Tools required are covered in the Education section (Chapter 3).

     The QUICKIE kit, properly constructed, will reproduce the successful original OUICKIE designed, made, and tested by QUICKIE AIRCRAFT CORPORATION.
