One thing about it; where you mentioned alignment... on though the end of the rivit process, it always seems to stay the exact dimension as when clecoed. That should make you happy!L.Adamson

All the clecoes are gone - except for the two at the corners holding the plumb bob strings. The wing twist came in around 1/8" from end to end. This falls within the measurements Van's considers acceptable. A friend came by to help with the riveting of the last 50 or so rivets that I could not reach myself from my creeper looking up from the floor or by reaching over the top of the main spar.More details and photos on page 9:http://home.earthlink.net/~n2prise/rv9a009.htmJerry K.
