Inspection is over and I did not take time off to relax, I tried, wife let me sleep for 10hrs then I got up and found that my mind was too much on the 750 to be able to read a book. SO I got back to ordering parts for the panel and the wings. THE pictrue above shows the final installation on the bottom of the wings which is the strut attachments.

You really have to see it to believe just how flat and beautiful the skins lay on the 750. This picture comes close.

The wing is finished now and will be ready for fitting to the fuselage soon, although the struts are still on backorder. I hope to have them soon as I want to have this plane into the paint shop while I am at Sun-N-Fun. I will add the slats and flapperons to the wings on Saturday.

No Robert, I do not like the look of a rolled edge personally. That line is the buffing from the Vixen file.

Mark, great looking skins. I noticed a slight ridge at the edge of the skin in pic # 1. Are you using an edge roller on them before final riveting. ?

I will be installing an LED NAV/STROBE system and using a Hella light for Taxi light
