Thought I would do a little photo document of the wing panel repair.
Here are the pictures.

Original damage. Turned in a near perfect flight like this, if you can believe it!
Top sheet removed. Lots of shattered ribs, but the CF LE is still great.
Lower sheet removed.
Sanded back to the spars.
Ribs made from printed templates.
Little sisters, mostly for proper and easy loacating of the new front ribs.
Sheeting will get a sister as well, on the left of the rib.
Another view of the top sister.
Similar to the original construction.
Top sheeting used P/U glue on. And judicious use of tape! And a steel bar for straightness too.
