Dan; that is really beautiful work! Or, as they say in the south, "mighty purty!" You might think about making a modification to the backside of the flop bulkhead while you're still working on this and have the varnish out. At some point just ahead of the bulkhead, you'll have a balance cable running inside the wing from aileron to aileron to connect them. On my airplane, that cable is not continuous... the cable is interrupted in the middle, the two pieces have thimbles nicopressed on them, and a removable link joins the two. In order to access that link, there is an elongated opening that is visible in the aft bulkhead when the flop is lifted (see pic for approximate location). The oval opening has rounded ends and routed/smoothed edges and is large enough to reach in and disconnect the link. This has come in handy several times now, for removing the wings. Of course, in your case you might also be able to access a connecting link from inside the fuel tank bay, but my airplane doesn't have a center section fuel tank. I can readily inspect the connecting link on preflight simply by lifting the flop a bit.
