Rigging Again

(1) standard wing: wing braces, etc...Has anyone developed an actual tension number for "twang" vs "twing?"; (2) How does one create wash-out, and what degrees of angle change is recommended? Any guidance on this will be greatly appreciated.

closing the gap between center section and wings?

I about ready to finish rigging and then covering the gap. Concerned about small pk screws into the thin wing ribs. Any suggestions out there?
