In the workshop, space is becoming scarce so we moved the wing to the garage.
The wings traveled the 60ft on the cradle through the garden, we used the fuselage crate to cater for the soft ground due to all the rain we had in the last days.






In the garage, the wings will protected from being nicked by a sarcophagus fabricated with the fuselage crate parts.

Construction of the wing stand. It's just two vertical posts fixed to the workshops frame. Then each on each post I screwed a horizontal piece of angle to support the main spar. Normally I should be able to work on both wings simultaneously. On the picture the spar is not yet blocked on the supports, first I'll have to square everything.

Normally the work on the wings begins with the building of some support structures to work on the spar. As this would mean to reorganize the workshop, I've decided to first build the control surfaces : ailerons and flaps. I took all the parts out of storage and put in order all the smaller parts.

The inventory is finished. Van's delivered two skins for the right flap but none for the left, some rivets are not the right size. And lastly a shared error as Van's forgot to deliver the floating fuel senders but I didn't see they were missing when they asked me to review my order before shipping. I think everything will be corrected soon.
