    That short spar cap angle reinforcement at the spar caps leads me to believe that spar is from an early 1800 lb Pacer or a Clipper.
    The higher gross weight spar has a second longer spar cap reinforcement at the strut attach point. The Max bending moment of the spar is at that connection to strut. KI don’t know why they would reinforce the shear web there.
    If you look closely at the top of the front spar at the strut attach point you can see the spar cap reinforcement on thr Clipper wing. Clicking on the picture will turn it right side up.-go figure. SJ doesn’t like my iPad or Apple products.

    Thank you Gilbert...looks like the same rivets...I do have the correct cap strips on hand. Looks like the front spars need to be removed and repaired correctly..or replaced.

    Pros and cons of installing landing/taxi lights in both wings. Iíve installed LEDís in leading edge of the left wing. Iím short one nose rib for the right wing...thinking...what about a second set of lights in the right wing? Is that evidence of drain bramage on my part?

    From my limited experience planes with landing/taxi lights in both wings and wig-wag or pulse function are more visible in daylight hours.

    We installed one light in each wing and used the wig wag feature. Pretty nice. I maintain a PA12 with the two light assembly in each wing. I installed a Maxpulse landing light controller with wing wag feature it really gets your attention.
