Default Wing Incidence Adjusters

I'm installing the F3A wing incidence adjusters on a BJ Park Etude. It looks like the best way is to use them is to mount them to the holes ahead of the main wing tube (and use the supplied ones on the holes behind the main wing tube). I'm guessing I'd glue the short tube pieces to the wing and they would slide into the adjusters. Is this correct? Or should I mount the small tubes to the adjusters and have them slide into the wing. Thoughts? Could someone post a picture of the fuselage insides and the wing mating surface?

Thanks a bunch!

That's a really good question, MPicou. I'm facing it on my latest plane, too.
I can say, however, that I used the latter method (sorta) on my last BJ plane and it's worked for years. My adjusters have 6mm pegs that stick out about 15mm from the fuselage sides to engage holes in the wing root.
Hope this helps.

If you search around you will find a thorough build thread thread on the Etude.
