I bolted a piece of 3/8" aluminum channel between two ribs to set the spacing from the spar. I then bolted two more pieces of the same material to the first piece to set the opening dimension for the bell crank cover. I glued small wood blocks to the spar face to attach the other end of these pieces to. I can take a picture and send it if you are still interested. On the old damaged wing the original builder attached his cover plates with screws directly into the fabric. He did add an extra layer to this area. Seemed to work fine but I was looking for something that would satisfy my tastes a little better. Doug
