    There are only 2 type's of failures SIGNAL & MECHANICAL ; Signal failure is the failure that happens between your Brain & your Thumbs, Mechanical failure's are all other failures. lol

    The tabs make it pretty simple to get the splice straight, I think.

    It looks straight, so thatís good.

    On to rebuilding the stringers.

    Doesn't matter if she is straight....

    Looks good Bob!

    I had to do the same rebuild on my Edge after a deadstick while transitioning from inverted to upright harrier. The key (as you know) is figuring out what order to put all the interlocking parts together but smooth sailing after that.

    Simple enough to do and the plane is like new when done (thanks to Pilot's wood replacement program)!

    Keep at 'er.....

    You guys have to fly side by each for comparison. Bobs might look a little womanly but that is OK.
