Default RE: How do you sheet without gaps?

I'm not sure if it makes a difference either. Like I said, I'm no expert. If your shear webs make a box or a "C", you don't usually have to sand them flush. You usually make them slightly smaller than the dimension from the top of the top spar to the bottom of the bottom spar, so they don't run past the edge. If I were doing the "I-beam" method you describe, I would probably try to sand them as close as possible to fit and then use a good fillet of glue to give them strength.
