I’ve been putting this off for a while but as the engine bay is pretty much complete, the wings can go on. There’s quite a lot of work to do before they’re fitted. First of all, the prep work.
All the external surfaces were sanded back with the air sander to give a good key for the filler (where its needed)
More importantly, the angle brackets which hold the top edge of the mud shields were totally rotten and needed to be replaced. They’re spot welded to the underside of the wing tops and will need to be drilled out, remanufactured and “fixed” back in place.
Out of idea curiosity, I dry fitted the wings a few weeks ago… just for the fun of it. Looks neat eh?
