Bending tabs on W-1204D (12iS) pg.17-06
Anyone experiencing what appears to be excessive angles called out for bending the attachment tabs on the wing closure W-1204D. Example: Many tabs call for a 30 degree bend. After doing so, I dry fit the part and found the tabs do not make proper contact with Wing Tip Bottom section. the tabs angle up at a significant angle instead of the tab laying flat against the bottom section. It appears a 15 to 17 deg bent would be more appropriate. I have not called Van's yet (weekend) but would like input before bending any more of the tabs. I do not like to 're-bent' aluminum.
