Riveted Reinforcement Plates and Nutplate

Inboard Aileron spar. Installed rivets and nutplate. Be very careful with the orientation of all parts here. It gets confusing, so double check with the plans on everything before riveting.

I primed and riveted the reinforcement plates.

I had to grind a small hole in the bottom rib corner to prevent interference with the nutplate. I'm also using a "floating" AN3 nutplate here. (The center section of the nutplate moves around slightly to aid in bolt alignment). I will be priming all of the other parts as soon as I'm done final drilling everything.
