Default heavy wing issue

Hi all, need advice to solve this.
I started to fly my -10 that was built by other builder and I finished.
The issue is that she flies with the right wing down tendency and in order to maintain the track I need to step the right pedal a little.
When I run with the autopilot , the right wing stays down about 3 degrees and she flies uncoordinated ( the ball is out of the center to the right side)
What should I do first ?
Your imputs will be highly appreciated.

Why not leave the wedge and call it good?

The short answer is to start the rigging process from the beginning. From what you have said, it is impossible to tell you what it wrong - so just start over.

For a ball way out like yours, I would also jack up both wings so the gear is off the ground and see how the wheel pants are mounted. Bad wheel pant and/or gear leg fairing rigging can put the ball way out.

Do all this before you add stuff like a rudder trim tab.

Look at my previous posts on rigging as a placer to start.
