STRAKES. Top Strake Installation #3

After trimming and matching the top strake, I used clecos to set it in place and drew a leveled line on the leading edge as a reference to grind it straight. This will help keep both sides symmetric and minimize filling and sanding later. After I confirmed correct wing incidence, my brother Ed, Craig Woolston, John Schoorl and I installed the top, per the manual. We had to work fast. There was no time for pictures during installation of the top and Alan was not available to take some.
