I might do like you Steve and cut the center section out of the wing and put it back together...just need to find a fuz to mount it to...not sure if I have enough though...the fire was pretty bad and I didn't have the truck, so I left it at the field....stunk to bad to put in the car I don't think I could ever take it back into the house the smell is so bad

Thanks for the sympathy guys...am always bummed for a few days....then get excited about the next build
