Final Assembly of the Flaps Part2
After the ribs, platenut, and rib support bracket have been riveted, I reinstall the spar. The spar then gets pop riveted to the ribs with LP4-3 rivets. I also used proseal and flush structural pop rivets to secure the trailing edge shims to the inboard and outboard ribs.
Next, I riveted the spar to skin rows. The bottom row gets the hinge riveted as well.
