Old wings to new QB fuse
I’m at the point I need to acquire a wing kit. My wish is for a QB set, but I’ve located an old (1996) SB wing kit locally that I will look at this weekend. It’s a 1996 kit, based on my research means previous version spars and tips, and the rear spar hinge SB. The spar doesn’t concern me, build quality and corrosion and completeness does. The big question I hope someone can answer from recent experience is can I put these wings on a new QB fuse? Any other advice?
I've already sent a note off to Vans on the topic, I'll report back what they say. I was hoping somebody had some experience with this big a time gap, so I had more confidence going into the inspection this weekend. Much like Bryan, I did the same (SB wings 2002, QB fuse 2007) with a five year time gap for my -9A. Vans did take back my 2002 center section in 2007.
