Upper wing spar cap strips

Tonight I decided it was time to start in on the upper wing spar cap strips. I started by referring to an email I sent to Rob at Raven Aircraft asking him which stack of random 1/4 x 1/2 and 1/4 by 7/8 goes where. It turns the 1/4 x 7/8″ goes between the root rib and the aileron bay on the lower wing (full span of the spar) everywhere else gets 1/4 by 1/2. There was also a stack of upper wing cap strip that was labeled upper wing cap strip it was easy to figure out where it went. So i cut all the cap strip for the upper and lower sides of the wing. I then mixed up a bunch of glue and glued all the cap strips on using small aircraft brad to hold the strips on while they dried.
