Perhaps I am missing something in the plans. Section 44 on wing attach has you fit the wing root fairing top and bottom to the fuselage. I recall doing a lot of filing to make this fit, although I don't see any mention now in the plans for having to do that. My question is, I see nothing calling for U-channel or other weather strip. rubber between the wing root fairing  and the fuselage. Even with careful fitting you pretty much have to have at least 16" gap. It seems like it might be worth enlarging the gap a little to put some for of rubber there to get an actual seal. What have all y'all done with that?

Filed to about a 1/16” gap. Be sure to allow for paint thickness, so my 1/16” gap was probably closer to 1/8” before paint.


Although I do know others that installed a rubber seal too.

I used edge guard from an auto body shop on both my -10s. Works very nicely.

You can’t put any rubber there. The fairing lays tight against the surface underneath. There is no room for any kind of seal.

I opened it up to about 1/8th inch or so, then installed some U shaped rubber on the wing root fairing. It seals up tight and looks nice.

No issues making it work - easy to do.
