To prepare for the pilot side strake fitting, we leveled the plane fore and aft, then installed the pilot side wing. This was a bit of a trick, and to save our locking nuts we got some 1/2″-20 nuts from Home Depot. After much trial and error, with a little Vaseline the went in. We then propped the outboard trailing edge with a bottlejack from Lowe’s to get the wing incidence correct.
