Wing - Left Wing

2004-05-01 - Wing skin preparation and assembly. (3.0 Hrs).

I took the week off from building, mainly because it was my anniversary last Tuesday. Now, I am back to building. More dimpling on the left wing outer leading edge skins, and installed the nutplates on the W-423 joint plate.

Removed the wing from the stand, and drilled out the rivet from hell in the rear spar. Replaced the bad rivet with a 3/16" pop rivet.
Installed nut plates in the W-423 joint plate. I also used the edge roller tool from Cleveland to bend the edge of the tank skin on the outboard end where it stuck up. This seems to help, but I won't be able to tell for sure until I actually put the tank and the outboard leading edge back on the main spar.
