Deburring, dimpling, priming, started riveting - 5.5 hrs.

Yesterday I put in 1.5 hours deburring. Nothing exciting and no need for pictures. Today I finished all the dimpling on the skins and ribs, scuffed and cleaned everything up, primed all the parts except the skins, and finally managed to get a start on riveting these flaps together for good.

Here are all the internal parts... spars, ribs, brackets, stiffeners and spacers. Primed and ready to go.

The only riveting I got done tonight was to rivet the nutplates onto the end ribs, and I riveted the stiffener plates to the spars. I'll have more pictures next time. The fun is about to begin!
