 I found some non-slip strips about 2 1/2" wide at the local home improvement 
store. They're light gray color with sticky back. I cut a couple of them to 
the right length and rounded the ends, stuck 'em on and they've made no 
attempt to move or slip in 5 seasons of flying, including a couple of trips 
to TX. No metal strip across the front; doesn't seem to be necessary with the 
rounded front. I think I still have the package in my hangar; I'll try to 
stop by there and get some more info in the next day or two.

I do regret, however, that when I repaired the wings I didn't replace the 
flimsy wing-walk plywood with something about 3/16" thick.
