The next problem was lifting the fuselage high enough to get the table in..... It needs to go a long way up and the gear / wheels have a surprising amount of spring in them.
The best location I could come up with was multiple shop bolts through the lower spar and a large sling onto the engine hoist. Actually worked really well!
Then found the table was just too tall / high - some minor tweaks.... chop 3" off each leg.
Table in - with rubber mat supporting the main spar box. All safe and secure.
Only a few bits done today - mainly main wheel fairing triming / opening of clearance around the main wheel.
