RV-8/8A building tip
I worried about this too, although on my RV-9A. I saw some posted photos on this website of an RV-7(A) doing a pullup/roll and there was distinct oil canning in the bay just aft of the baggage bulkhead, and a slight one in the bay aft of that. I added some leftover Van's J channel to the aft most bay and Van's EFIS tray and my own mirrored version in the bay aft of the baggage bulkhead. Once the skin oil cans (buckles) the load has to go somewhere else. I prefer to add stiffeners.
