I'm sure it didn't help, I had my wing upside down on the bench and was literally hitting the air tubes with a jolt straight from my Slime air compressor. After the first couple of times when I realized they were smacking the bottom of the wheel well (top of the wing) I cushioned the blow with my hand, but too late. Some thin CA on the top of the wing and the cracks are hardly noticeable. When I finish my GS Corsair one day (hah), maybe I'll sand the Mustang back down for a re-finish.

Thanks for the reply Frank!
