Picked all the parts for the leading edges. I cut the splice strips from the tank skins and trimmed the tabs from the cover plate doubler using snips.

Cut out the leading edge cradles from the shipping crate top. Forgive the blur in the image… I photoshopped out my address from the top of the create.

Cut the 2 x 4, glued it, and screwed it to the cradles. Clamped them to the workbench

Off to Nashville for a conference tomorrow… Sophie said she’d prep (peel, edge deburr, and scuff) all the parts while I’m gone. So should be able to begin fabrication and fitting when I get back later in the week.
