I have a question related rebuilding and airframes.
The plane is a 40 size Cap fairly aerobatic plane and it has some cross braces broken/missing from the formers. Each former has 2 cross braces one on the top and on the bottom, the fuse of the plane itself is sheeted. The only thing these formers did was hold a tube to feed the antenna through with ! How much do u think this will hurt the integrety of the airframe for general flying purposes ?
The braces themselves are not easy to get to since u can only get to them from inside the fuse. They sit a little ways back from the trailing edge of the wing. Iam debating if i should repair this or save weight and leave it be ?
Any help would be appreciated

Do you have any pics of the damage?
If these parts really do just hold a tube for the antenna then you should be golden. But since they are in the wing saddle area I think most folks here would want to take a look before giving advice that may end a flight....well poorly.
How was the fuse damaged?
