Oly's have a spar top and bottom.
That looks more like a Wanderer wing to me.
Fuse does not ring any bells from the pics.

Didn't the Windrifter have a top and bottom spar?
Looks a lot like a Wanderer wing to me.

Drifter II - yes. Windrifter - absolutely.

After taking another look at the wing and sliding it to the side a little, I'm pretty sure it's the original. It was just fitting a little loose because of rubber band crunch on the trailing edge. The color scheme of the wing matched the fuse so it was probably all done at the same time.
I pulled out some plans for a Wanderer and this cord is a bit wider. There is one thing that is unique in the wing, the corner gussets have a "C" cutout in them as if to lighten them a little. I haven't seen that before.
Windrifter II, Thanks Buran. I'm looking for a photo of one with a glass fuse.
