    Default Leading Edge Skin Clamps

    Just a note out to all builders that haven't yet installed leading edge skin.....I have Theo Mulder's clamps and finished up my wings today so the clamps are available. These clamps work very well. Be careful as Mitch has warned, don't cinch them up too tight or you risk damaging your nose ribs. Finger tight works perfect.
    Contact me through the forum or by email at paulborys@borderglass.com if you'd like me to ship them out to you.

    Done with the clamps. Who needs them next? I made 4 more but didn't need them. It seemed to work best one rib at a time. Got leading edge skins on quicker and tighter doing it the way the manual recommended on the second wing. One clamp in each side of a rib and doing all the rivets. Duct tape to hold the rest of the skin in place. Don't forget and rivet rib 5 on top. Cap strip locations get riveted later. (Long range tanks).
