    I have always built wings up on two level saw horses with a removable washout block that I install after the wing is trammeled square. Learned the hard way about trying to trammel with the washout black installed.

    I also built the Starduster and Carbon Cub wings on saw horses.

    Thanks for the advise. I built my sport trainer wings vertically, which was easier for some things but made getting to some other parts, drilling, riveting, and such very difficult.

    I finished the top deck U channel, got it cleaned and epoxy primed.

    Man I'm glad I found this build thread before I start mine. I'm a fabricator and always love seeing a detailed, quality example before I start any project. Very nice work.
