Leading edge riveting, deburring

Hours: 3.3 | Posted in Skin Panels, Spars & Skeleton

Finished the riveting of the leading edges; worked the right assembly in the cradle, then stood both L & R on end to reach in and drive the last 3 rivets at the nose of each rib.  Both came out nicely.

Primed the skin countersinks on the spar flanges, as well as dressed out & primed several bucking dings on the webs.  Started dimpling the wing skeletons…lots of holes!  Got a little more than halfway through.
