Todd. Check your FB Messenger for pics. I couldn’t upload pictures here.

PS: Credited to Henry for bringing it up - he "stimulated" me to respond with my experience.

Follow the procedure as outlined. I had a heavy left wing and went to "opposite wing", e.g. right aileron, and using vice gripe pliers with tape on jaws to protect metal and appropriately adjusted jaw opening to not "crush" the skin and making just a small amount of pressure in between alternate rivets along the entire length of the aileron flat trailing edge solved my problem. Approach cautiously and don't be heavy handed - may take more than one procedure/flight check to get what you want. You will note that the trailing edge can be moved with moderate pressure but it does have a "spring back " effect. Keeps your Coupe looking "standard"!

Todd, I'll try to remember next time I'm at the hangar. Probably this weekend.
