Brief Description:  Lower strake glassing to main spar

It was time to attach the lower strake to the main spar. I checked the fit up one more time and mixed up the resin after sanding every thing up. I will do the Pilot side different. When I applied up-word pressure the wing lifted of the support jut a bit moving the incidence out a bit. I had to cut the bottom part that attaches to the wing so that the wing would move back to its right spot before glassing the lower strake to the fuselage. After adjusting the incidence back with wedges to the correct location the bottom was glassed in and it work out perfect I was very pleased with this out come. On the Pilot side I will lift the back of the wing that small amount to have the incidence correct. I now have the wing supported for the rest of the fuel tank / strake build taking weight of the main spare so no twisting will occur when the baffles go in. I can see that the day the top goes on it will lock the main spar from any twisting.
