    Normally a thin piece of wood/fiberglass would be glued to the flange and that is covered.

      i guess that is a better solution - I did contemplate it but the flanges are very narrow (3mm) on mine.. and now I've already glued the spoiler in place at the right (wrong) height so if I glued a piece of wood onto the spoiler flange it would now be too high, duh oh.... ah well, i will know for the next wings i make with spoilers !

        If you give some exact measurements to me then I can cut some lithoplate to fit onto you spoilers. Lithoplate is very thin and pretty stiff. I can even paint the top side white and have them ready to be epoxied in place at Horizon if you plan attending that aerotow.

          Arup thanks for your generous offer, but I've added the balsa fairings now and Other will work ok. Also I live in Australia !

          Neil, sorry for the late reply. For some reason I don't get email notices on this thread. Very annoying. I glued my spoilers in after covering the wings so the covering is lapped over and down into the recess and then the spoilers set on top of it.

            Hey Art,

            I found a way to fix the annoying lack of email notices on this thread...... get on the site and check it each day. Just sayin...
