Hi  I recommend to staple and glue the bottom on first .  that is after fitting the wood to the wing part then put glue on the nose ribs and pull the wood around the leading edge and use straps (Ratchet)  Then glue the top of the wing spar and staple it .   Leonard

Hi Guys
if it turns out that you have dimples in your leading edge skins  cut a one half nose rib (top half) and force it in through the lighting holes in the spar and move it to the dimple and it will take the dip out . in most cases.   Leonard

Left wing ready for covering! The wife sanded everything and put two coats of spar varnish on it. Going in the wing rack today.
I have a bout two weeks work to finish the right wing.
