LevelOne Genesis and Black Jack Specs

Hi All!
I have been recently gifted with a few second-hand sails of Level One Genesis and Black Jack.
As they are still crispy, I thought of re-sparring them and giving them a try in the air.
The problem is I do not have any information on spars (found a bit about Genesis), connectors' positions, nor bridles.
If anyone of you has any of these kites in his bag (in any version) I would be grateful for sharing the information!
Hoping for any feedback! ;)

Stan,
This gives me a chance to start brining the kite back to life!
Thanks a lot!

BTW... no tailweight? only nose?

Cheers,
Paweł

Only nose ............. but the two weights are zip-tied to the spine and I think I read somewhere,that one could be slid down the spine to the centre-piece and I seem to remember trying that at first and then soon reverting to both at the nose.

Oh yes,forgot to mention I have a Genesis standard, sitting in it's bag awaiting repairs.If you want any other measurements just ask.

Thanks for your advice! Will check this version for sure!

Now just to get spars for the kites and a bit of time to set them up.

Thanks again for all advice!
In the end I decided to frame my Genesis as a UL version.
So here it is:

I like that yellow on black colour scheme; my STD genesis is a green on grey,not my favourite look but I liked flying it,till the nose stitching came apart a few years back.
