The main spar/number 4 frame, front spar/number 3 frame, numbers 5 and 6 frames in the wing jig.  The station 14 template in the background is being aligned.  The station 1 template is just roughly held in place.



The left wing tip of the spar was leveled fist with the center of the spar and then the right wing tip of the spar was leveled with the left wing tip.



At age 56, Al has finally mounted the wing spars into the wing jig.



2mm plywood pads were glued to the #1 through #4 intermediate leading edge ribs for strength around the  aileron cable and coax and wiring holes
