Re-installing Bonanza wings

I was wondering if you had any tricks of the trade for re installing Bonanza wings?



We use a long table specially built to support the wing; each corner is independently height adjustable so the wing is in proper positioning without having to rely on a strong back.

Other than that, use new hardware unless you had yours inspected (magnafluxed), this is the best time to replace the root seals, and don't forget to replace the crush washers at the upper attach junctions.

A little lube on the seal helps it find it's happy spot.
