I use a laser line tool to shoot a straight line on the steel without the plan. Set the magnets on the line and butt the bottom spar cap and sheeting to the magnets and use a second magnet to hold the cap down. I also make rib spacing/ square blocks to keep the wing accurate. Most plans are off a little so my wings are straighter now. This technique will change the order of construction steps in the instructions. I pop the wing off the steel to add epoxy in the joiners then do the final sheeting and LE. With laser cut ribs this method will make straighter wings.
