I don't have that plane but I'd just use hinge tape. weight is not your friend.
have you tried an internet search for the CG.
if the wing is of the hersey bar type then just use the 25 to 30 percent of the cord.
For instance if I have a wing that is 10 inches wide then I'd balance her at 2.5 inches from the leading edge.

I just checked a WD4 wing and I have the CG marked at 2 3/4" from the wing leading edge.

Here is a big thread on the WD:
