Although I had already done a detailed inventory and inspection when I picked up the project, I took the time to have a look at everything again and get it all put away.
I only had a couple of days before I had to head back on another 2 month deployment, but I did have time to cleco both wing skeletons together!
I made up some stands to aid in the mounting of the wings, and it worked out really well. Once I had the fuselage level, I used shims and digital levels to get the wings where the needed to be before for drilling to the fuselage and before starting on the wing struts.
Again, kudos to Zenith on a great kit. Once I had the wings drilled to the fuselage and the wing struts built on the bench, it was pretty easy to install the struts right where they needed to be. Took a lot of fitting and drilling and installing and removing, but I'm happy with the result!
