<<I also ordered 2”& 3” shims for the rear wing. Do you these would help or the shim on the fuselage would be better? >>

The short answer is I have no idea.

The longer answer is I assume the wings were designed at a specific angle with respect to each other to optimize performance. As such, I don't want to mess with that so mast shims seem like a safer means to the same end to me.

Some questions and comments:
beautiful setup....I like the look of this board.
This mast wing combo is from the Moses SUP and Surf line and the geometry is not set up quite right for kiteboards...but its easy to fix. You just need to get your center of gravity (weight) further forward to the point you like the balance and weight distribution.

So Ghost Whisper is a Moses but branded in Slingshot painting?

I've been out on my 633 5 times now. 75 kg.
Thursday and today I was flying Sonic 2 13m in 10-12 knots. It was brilliant. This kite and foil combo is great! Perfect to practice transitions with kite lift. In 12-13 knot gusts I pushed foil to 32km hr. On strapless 120cm board the max speed is reached without excessive tendency to breach and handles turbulent water well. I was riding swell with kite almost Slack and drifting easily. In 15 knots I'd use my Hyperlink 9m.
I'd go strapless and use smaller kite.

Just an update...
I have been out on my GW 91 2019 and Hypermiler a few times now. I love this set up. You have to position the foil all the way back on the board tracks (to avoid the dreaded front foot pressure) and it rides like a dream.
I also ride a Spotz Shark which I love but they are 2 different foils. I find myself using the SS most days as its playful and you can play with small waves comfortably.
Build quality is excellent on both the foil and board. The board is simply a dream to ride and even though doesn't have any pads it works well with or without boots.
