mounting the wings
« on: March 11, 2016, 08:21:35 AM »
My support stands are built, hoping to mount the wings soon.  Any words of wisdom to make it easy on my helpers?  It seems like I need an engine hoist and three people holding the wing and one inserting bolts.  Anything else?

4 hours and not done yet, trouble with aft spar attach bolt clearance to fuselage skin, hopefully trimmed and done this week.  3 bolts per side, and not a lot of wiggle room.

It is together! Still lots of details, but pieces going on and staying on.
