Right Flap Assembly Pt.1
Right Flap skeleton. Check plans to ensure correct placement of ribs.
I clecoed everything up, then removed the spar for riveting access.
Inside shot. I used pop rivets LP4-3 on the rear rib to rear spar connection. The marks are duct tape smears from the bucking bar. Yes, this is a tight and painful area to rivet.
After the ribs are riveted, I reinserted the spar and clecoed it up. This was followed pop riveting the spar to the ribs, then solid riveting the top and bottom rows. Don't forget to fit the hinge in place before riveting.
