    Noticed my furthest inboard rib wasn't square so cut the trailing edge apart and redid it.

    Thanks to your typical awesome person, I can touch up the covering. Big thanks to 'stangflyer for the repair pieces.

    You are most welcome. That piece I sent you is really just a left over piece as you can see. If you need more....just let me know.

    After looking at that area again, I am starting to wonder if it wouldn't just be best to completely remove the wrinkled covering. In the past, I have seen Ultracoat that has been heated repeatedly and shrunk over and over become hard as the hubs of hell. I have tried to salvage pieces that have been overly heated and shrunk and seriously, there was nothing I could do about it. By completely cutting that bad section out, you eliminate the possibility of the wrinkle coming back..."under" the new sectioned in patch piece. I figure if it is going to have a patch either way, I would just remove the "affected" area and put down a clean patch. Just a thought....

    Coming along one piece at a time. Looking good. What is that wrapped around the wing tip edge looks like white paper what is it for.

    Soaking the spruce dowel, need to bend it up for the final 2 glue joints.

    Slowed down a bit here but still try to glue a piece or 2 weekly. Some progress today on the wing tip.

    What a really neat trick. I will have to remember that as it just may come in handy.
