Step 5. Installation of lower triangular longerons

The upper longerons are glassed. The lower longerons are floxed in place and clamped with a lot of clamps!

Another trick I used from a builders site. To clamp the triangular longeron is not possible without a support. I decided not to use nails as suggested in the plans. Instead I used 11 clamps on each side. I made some small supports with a triangular cutout that matched the longeron. In this way the clamp sits tight and the longeron is firmly pressed down to the fuselage.
