Gerald Kelley came home to help me attach the wings to the aircraft.  The splice plates were already drilled when I constructed the spars.  So, all we had to do was to attach the wings, align them so they are perpendicular to the fuselage and assure that they have the same incidence.  We did this during the month of July 2003, under the rain.

Once this was done, I was able to continue working on everything that needs to be done while having the wings in place.  I connected the wiring, connected the fuel pumps to fuel tanks, installed the pitot/static, determined battery location (following a preliminary w&b), made the wing joint cover strip (above and below) and more.
