Default Byron P51 Late style (plug in wings) Question on the CG

Any of you Byron guys know where the P51 CG is measured from? Manual says "5 1/2 inches from the leading edge of wing at center section". Guess my question is that measured from where the wing plugs into the center section, or further inboard closer to the fuselage? I'm about dead on if its out where the wing plugs in, but a little nose heavy if its further inboard by the fuselage. Don't know if its a big concern, but the manual is not very specific. Thanks for any help out there!

The CG is 5 1/2" from the leading edge at the wing root. If you are balancing where the wing plugs in (outboard of stub wing), the CG is 3 1/4" from the leading edge.

Thanks, kingair70, usually it is the wing root, but the manual says the 5 1/2" from the leading edge at the Center section. Its just a little misleading, or I'm just a little slow!! The wing gets wider at the wing root and the 5 1/2 seemed about right but wanted to get someone's else opinion. Thanks again.
