Wow Bryce - You're Kreskin II or too
I used the carbon tube to make sure the rib holes lined up and the ply pieces were in the right spot. I've messed up stuff like this too many times in the past. Line up is always my biggest challenge. The trick with those ply parts is to put the right amount of glue to tack them but not too much! I only glued the tube once. I did put the blind nut in too. Thanks for the help. Remember I just did one wing so there are still plenty of mistakes I could make. FYI I ran each ply part up and down the tube a few times and also ran the tube thru the ribs before assembly to loosen things up. How are y'all making sure the tube does not 'migrate' all the way into one wing panel? Seems like it needs stops or something.
Bryce - I've ordered the red/white from Stevens to do the Redline thing on the small one since you sent me the graphics and all. Think they'd want a larger one too? I'd need larger graphics.
