Thanks to my screwing up bad enough that I had to remake one wing spar and the center spar, and with life in general getting in the way of my working on my plane, I am now back to where I was the end of January.  I just completed making the new spars (match drilled and reamed to 1/4" only until spars are riveted together).  I did not re-use any pieces of the original spars because everything was drilled to final size when I screwed up and I did not want to chance trying to match drill some pieces to un-drilled parts.  

I couldn't resist slipping the spars together after drilling
