I actually put the old 6 elem. logcell together for the upcoming 10m contest. Never expected that I would actually use it again and forgot to mark bits and pieces. But overall putting it together went smooth.  Unfortenately just when I was ready to get it up the small mast it there was a very heavy storm arriving with thunder, lightning, rain and hail. So, I hope to continue Saturday morning if weather and time alows. Some specs of this antenna. 4 elements fed, gain about 11dBi, front to back >30dB, front to side approx 25dB. Unfortenately I don’t have a heigh mast to put it on. So the specs will not be that good as on say 12 Mtr height. I think even on a low mast it will outperform my multiband vertical on 10m. We will see this weekend.
