Todd,

If you run short on clecos let me know. Having built both wings together I have lots.

Todd you will have to come over when I do mine.
Did you consider squeezing them?

I did, but the angled dies I bought from Cleaveland were set up for the opposite angle for the elevators. They're held in alignment with a wire spring, but it wasn't removable.

First update in a while...
 
Now that things have settled down, I went ahead and placed my SB fuse order back in August, and my finishing kit last week. I'm expecting the fuse in or around April and the finishing kit next August.

We'll probably be moving between now and then to a place with a larger garage but I have some fiberglass work to keep me busy, also collecting other smaller items along the way.

SB Fuselage on the way!
 
Last week, Vans website said my kit would head to crating around April 25 to May 15.

A day or two later I get an email that it headed to crating. Then the next day an email saying my kit had shipped. :eek:

They've really sped up the process it appears. I've been following its progress across the country, and tracking shows the truck just left Minneapolis on its way to Detroit, I think I should be able to pick it up this weekend if ABF is open.
