Mounting the wing in the jig

I had a little bit of trouble mounting the left wing. It was really not a big deal but it caused me to have a spinning dremmel tool within a 1/4" of my main wing spar and that should be avoided if at all possible so I write this so the next guy won't have to do what I did.

The problem is really simple and I should have looked at the plans closer. The skins on the outboard end of the wing overhang the ribs and spar by half an inch or so and this interfered with my brackets that hold the wing on the outboard end. It is pretty easy to modify the brackets with grooves to accomodate this.

See the following picuturs for how I modified the top bracket. Remember the bottom had to be modified too but I didn't take picutures of it...
