    I do understand your fix High Country, it’s a good idea. I’m going to have to check to see if the fuel tank attachment area covers the rivet holes for the reinforcement plate. I’m glad I finally chimed in on this web site, the knowledge on the Avid is impressive. It’s much appreciated, thanks all.

    Excellent idea, I like the jig part. I see you have gussets on the bottom, I may do that for piece of mind. Thanks!

    The company I work for uses a two part epxoy primer on acft, its very durable and expensive.

    The tube is so short and stout I wasn’t sure how I would be able to bend it.
    I'll have to put some thought into that. I'd rather do that than weld it. Thanks for the impute.

    I hear what you’re saying, I’m somewhat familiar with owner built parts, working at a 145 repair station we have to build parts that are no longer available on behalf of the owner.

    FWD LH wing spar/fuselage attach holes


    Hopefully the pictures posted. I have a problem, the fwd. wing spar attach point holes were not drilled correctly and don’t line up perfectly with fuselage attach point. The fwd. spar holes are approx. 1/8 of an inch aft of the fuselage attach point. I can’t get the pin to drop through. My plan is to remove and weld a new attach point on the fuselage, I figure this will be the easiest and safest fix. I'd remove the current fuselage attach tube and weld a new tube in 1/8 aft, using the same holes, no splicing of tubes. What do you think? Does my corrective action sound good?

    Hello Everyone

    I've been searching (trolling) around this site for a few years looking for build information. I've got a MARK IV with a 582, which I acquired from a friend who gave up on it long ago. It’s all there, he bought it new sometime in the early 90's after a visit to the factory. The wings are about ready for covering, that’s what I've been working on lately. I’m a A&P mechanic by trade, most of my career has been spent working on corporate aircraft. I've done a lot research on the Avid, this website's been a big help. Thanks!
