Once you build a part, you must see that it fits and is made correctly.  Here Chuck Mounted his Pitts Aircraft Top Wing to the airframe to ensure a proper mount.

My next step was to start covering. I started watching the Stits covering video; you know somebody had way too much time on their hands when they come up with that knot shown in the video. Have a good VCR that will allow you to view this in slow motion. Once you get the hang of it, its not hard. During this covering process my dad watched and did not say much until about an hour of watching – then he spoke up. “You don’t actually expect to fly this thing after making it out of a bunch of sticks and covering it with a bed sheet do you”. “It may make a cute go-cart, but it won’t fly”, “Will it”? Then I made another mistake, at a stopping point I showed him the video of Aerobatics that I purchased from IAC. He didn’t say much, just stared at me and said, “Boy, you know you’re not right”. Later that day I received a call from my mom, she didn’t seem very happy either. I assured them that these people on the video were professional and I would never be doing those maneuvers. (At least not at first).
