We spent about 1.5 hours last night drilling the front ribs into place and measuring and positioning the tip ribs.

There was some confusion over how to drill the holes for the tip ribs. Nick from Zenith suggested drawing the flange line out onto the outboard side of the rib and measuring from there. He also told me that drawing 7H3-2 holds the edge distance for the A5 holes that go below it.

While I was talking to Zenith I went ahead and ordered the flaperon and slat kit. It will take about five weeks to get to our workshop.
