This tool helped me remove the small screws that hold the covering on the wings that were glued in.

So removing the small PK screws that hold the covering to the Ribs is tough. They are an unusually small Phillips size. I tried a #1 but it would slip out easily. Someone on FB recommended “Vampliers” which are a specialty set of pliers that are srpingloaded open and designed to grip Screws!

Well I can tell you, a couple of turns with the Vampliers and those screws came right out. Great investment to my Toolbox for about $25 and ordered from Amazon. See the video below.
