Leading edge assembly

Hours: 1.9 | Posted in Accessories & Mods, Skin Panels

Clecoed the primed LE components together and test fit on the wing skeletons (again, to be sure they went back together correctly, remembering the trouble I had fitting the left LE the first time).  No problems with the fit, so they’re ready to be riveted.  Need to touch up some bucking dings on the spar before they can be riveted on for good.

Also riveted the LE light brackets together and fit the reflectors in place.  These won’t go into place until the LE assemblies are riveted onto the spar, to save them from vibration.  I’ll fit the lenses once the LE’s are riveted together, but probably off the spar for easier access.
