Wing Attach

Attaching the wings and landing gear mains to the RV-6A.

Preparing the Fuselage.
I added an engine mount support to hold the front of the fuselage and removed the wood support that has been through the wing spar area for years.  I removed control surfaces and the fuel tanks.  I'm ready to insert the wings!!

It feels great to have the wings on.

Fitting the right flap: 3 degrees outside. Brrr.
