Default optional fit for RV6 wings

I have a completed set of RV6 wings on the shelf and am looking for a project to use them on. Could these be retrofitted a RV7, 9 or? fuselage. I am just trying to widen my options for the search. I would even be considering a damaged aircraft needing wings. Anyone have experience with this sort of thing?

Nope! Wing attachment for the -6 is totally different from any other RV.

Contact Team Rocket to see if they could be adapted to the F-4 airframe.
Report back if it?s possible, I also have an extra set of 6 wings cluttering the hangar.
