I decided to use a 5/16 x 18 coupling nut rather than the plans 1/4 x 28 nuts welded together. The Tie Down Ring options for 1/4 x 28 seemed too small.

My heated glue tent so that the parts stay warm enough for the epoxy to cure. It is winter and the unheated garage will drop below 20 at night.

Since I pre made the ribs they need to be slid on the wings before the spar doublers are installed. Then the holes in the spars need to be transferred to the doublers.
