After removing the cross beams on top and the 4 upgrights, we cut two of the uprights down to 22". This will lead to the front of the fuselage being held up 25" above the floor. After a run to Aircraft Home Depot is made, we can finish the other side to hold the tail up.

Wings have been moved to the cradle. Here is what the wing jig looked like...

After the cross beams on top and the four upgrights cut off. The 2 on the near field of the picture have been recut to 22" and cross members installed for support.

Here is the beefy main center fuelage support.
