Keeping your wings snug

I was considering just replacing the fuselage again, but if the foam on the wings compresses and fits too loosely in the new fuselage, I might as well just buy a whole new kit?

What is your experience with replacing parts vs. the whole kit? And where is the cheapest place to get parts/kit?

What i did was simply put three layers of white elecrical tape around the inside wing ends when mine started to get loose,i have not had a problem since
IF you don't like that, the tape won't rip away chunks of foam if you want to remove it. Hope this helps
