Here's a peek at how the braces looked after cutting.



And the angle. Notice there is no support on the other side of that wing. You can see the clamped wing sits higher.



And the other goobox which I'll finish up tonight.

Well after the goobox cured and I got to measure the wing tips I wasn't happy that left panel was unacceptably higher than the other. I took my dremel and dug out the goobox the plan is to shim the outboard and make new spacers. I had measured prior to gooing but what I hadnt taken into account was the premade spacers. They were created on the wrong angles and I think they caused the spar to shift.

Last night I got it dug out and ready for another go. I was surprised how strong those litle boxes are. It really took a lot to undo it.

I have been waiting on starting the covering until I got a complete barebones pic. I got o e last nigbt so I can start covering the finished pieces.

Here's the barebones.

I've gotten the issues sorted out with the wings and have begun covering. There will be no more updates to this build log until the aircraft is delivered. I'll continue taking pictures but I want the completed project to be a surprise to the owner.

Please be patient.
