I am planning to install a bolt as well. Probably a good idea to leave them all loose until the wings are mounted. Hadn't considered that. Thanks!

Yeah, Van's mentioned 40A-03 in our discussion but, of course, that's for the attachment of the upper gear brace. Does raise the question whether it would be better to use a long bolt through both holes (in which case I would definitely leave it loose until the wings are mounted) or two short bolts. The long bolt might, in fact, be closer to the original engineering. I appreciate the mention! Thanks!
