Wow - that must take a huge number of clecoes.  I don't like the thought of not being able to finish each stage of construction... I would think they should be able to use photographs to verify proper assembly.

Nice work Brian; it looks great. My rudder, elevator and horizontal stabilizer will be wearing Clecoe's until I get my 'pre-cover' inspection done, which won't happen until I have the wings done. In Canada all of the aircraft components that will be enclosed need to be inspected prior to riveting them closed. Since you pay for the inspection, homebuilders normally wait until they have them all done before booking the inspection. Would be nice to button them up and call them 'done', but not in Canada.
