Sig SE Wheel Pants

My club flys from a grass field. I am just completing a Sig SE and
wonder if I should install the pants or just forget about them.

The Somethin Extra flys MUCH better with the pants installed. You can cram in a slightly larger wheel, and mount the pants high to help with the grass dragging.

I fly off a grass field and have pants on several of my planes. IMHO, the SE looks much better with the pants. Just make sure you have adequate space in front AND in back of the wheel - if need be "hog" out the opening with a dremel.

Fred,
I have flown an SE since they first came out and never had a problem using wheel pants on our grass field. In fact, the pants included in the kit are perhaps the best ones I have ever used. After 4+ years of flying this plane almost every week, I still don't even have the usual hairline cracks that always seem to develop.
As you can see, I'm impressed with Sigs quality. By the way, I'm referring to the kit version (I have no experience with the ARF version).
