Friday night we got just a little done. We deburred, corrosion protected and riveted the L angles to the left wing.

Saturday night was very productive. Not only did we drill the L angles for the right wing, corrosion protect and rivet, but also got the tip ribs drilled into place for the right wing.

The tip ribs were just a bit of a problem due to the length of the spar and our need to keep the garage door closed for warmth.

We also had a bit of confusion over which spar was the right spar and which was the left. Luckily the builder's manual and some other drawings cleared everything up.
