Dimpled Main Ribs and Rear Spar
This was a little tricky, due to the fact that the ribs were already attached to the spars in the jig. I used my pneumatic squeezer, with 3/32 dies, to get in and dimple the ribs and rear spar. I will be touching up the rear spar dimples with my #40 countersink bit to ensure a good tight fit when the skins are riveted on. I will be getting to the sealing of the tanks as soon as I can get a hold of some proseal. I also need to order a flop tube(s) to be able to fly sustained inverted flight. On a final note, I am researching pitot tubes and landing light options.
