It was suggested that I list my "givens and druthers," so here is a preliminary list:
c-85 / c-90 / o-200, wood prop, 30" straight pipes w/ muffs for carb and cabin heat
3" Alt, ASI. 2" whisky, temp, psi, egt, cht. Rectangular electronic tach w/ hours. Sight gauge for bottom half of tank.
bowden tube carb and muff controls, "Y" stick, dual rudder pedals
aluminum floor which is also fuselage bottom panel
100% polycarbonate or other transparent "patrol" doors (concerned acrylic might be to brittle)
woven aluminum seats, 4 point harnesses
aluminum baggage with net (and I suppose I have to have an ELT)
Waxable single high visibility color finish (yellow a leading candidate)
I have come here to educate myself and I am pretty certain that I have the least experience of any of the potential participants in this thread. All the airplanes that I have built to date were made of balsa and my certificate is probably still warm from being printed. So however incorectly worded my questions are requests for information.

Look in the Wittman section... you'll find a Buttwind.... errr Buttercup / Tailwind mix
It's a good plane for the custom job you're looking to build
and the building log is easy to look through
and build your wings on the way down...
