    Since the right wing is a duplicate of the left I won't post as many photos. I got the right spars cut, drilled for fittings, epoxy primed spars, fittings, and ribs. Assembled the fittings and ribs onto the spars. Then I welded up the compression struts and epoxy primed them. Once these were installed I got the drag wires in and trammeled the wing square. The ribs and nose ribs were then riveted into position.

    Just a quick update. I made the drag tube and got it mounted in the wing. Installed the fuel tank straps. Notched out and fitted the 3 leading edge sections and the 2 false spar sections and started lining up the aileron to the wing.

    Work on the wing has been going a little slow lately but I did manage to disassemble the leading edge, false spar, drag tube, and the aileron hinge bracket. I cleaned them up, epoxy primed everything, and then did the final install back on the wing.
