BS 1088 doesn't apply to the Doug Fir ply you show. And it only controls the manufacturing process not the strength properties.

What do you use for the little square of 3/4" ply on the firewall?
The plans call for Marine or exterior ply for the firewall. I used exterior ply from the lumber yard. A VP-1 firewall will fit on one of those 2'x2' project panels from the big box stores. =/<$10?

I envy you guys who live in a part of the country where they can find good DF stock locally.

It's just a pile of CAD drawings sitting in a dusty corner of my hard drive, but a lot of the ideas live on in the Ranger.
