Check with the folks at Cleveland Tool. However many they sent with their RV12 tool kit was about right. Only a couple of times I wished I had a few more but made do.

I'm guessing Vans estimate accounts for building one wing at a time. Did you build both your wings at the same time?

You'll need a lot of the copper ones. I bought the listed kit from Cleveland tools when I started, they are a good source of how much/many you'll need for any one thing. At one point doing the wings I used every one of those.

You will need a couple dozen more than what you got, no matter how many you got.

This means, when you run out of clecos you should start driving/pulling rivets.
