Right Wing Ribs Riveted

After confirming that the wing skins look ok when clecoed down, I spent a few hours securing the ribs in place. I was able to do a few things better than on the other wing – for example, I figured out that it was much easier to install the step ribs one at a time, rather than cleco them all in and then have to work in tight quarters.

We had some nice weather, so I also finished priming the wing skins, since I’ll probably be ready to install this week.

Yup, much easier this way!
