Paint job

What kind of paint are you using? Do you have problems with it staying on the taped surfaces? I have been avoiding using colored tape because of the extra weight.

I've been trying to refine the shape of the airfoil by gluing in a couple of ribs made of blucore. So far it seems to help a little. I found that leaving the wing in the car where it can get warm allows it to lose the curve on top of the wing. It settles into an angled surface breaking down where it goes over the spar. I put a crude rib near the center and at the midpoint of the wing and it maintains the curve a little better.
