Default F-704G center section vertical bar (newbie)

I bought a project nearly completed a couple of years back (RV7) ,almost ready to fly now but looking at the plans I noticed the F-704G vertical bars are not installed. I have been trying to order a couple of these from Vans but F-704G is not recognized on the order list. Anyone have a suggestion?

Have you tried calling them? I have noticed not everything is in "the list".

This part comes as part of the F704 center section assembly, matched drilled (as I understand) as a set with the F704 E/F center section halves and the wing spars.

Check with Vans on this; this could be a difficult add-in after the fact. Two AN4 bolts go through this block to the wing spar web nutplates. Something needs to go in there to act as a spacer.
