Fits perfectly! I fixed the wood to the wing with a big drop of hot glue. Now repeat it on the other side of the wing - drill a hole in the wooden plate, put a needle through the upper plate, wing, lower plate, mark the position.

Before digging a hole in the wing to accommodate the wooden re-enforcements, I suggest some practicing on scrap styrofoam

As I was confident enough, carved the place for the re-enforcement into the wing. I first drilled a hole through the piece of wood you can see on the first pic, then I put the needle through it, then through the wing, and I marked its' dimensions on it.

Now to the carbon rod. I didn't want to have the thin steel wire directly rub on the soft wood, so I cut the carbon rod to fit the hole...
