Right Flap Assembly Pt.2

Right inboard rib shown with support bracket and AN4 nutplate(hole near end of bracket) riveted in place.

I used proseal on the trailing edges of the inboard and outboard ribs. This should add support to the pop rivets and spacers that were used at the trailing edge. No, it's not mandatory, but I had a little left and decided to use it.

Here the top row and spar to ribs rows have been riveted. Bottom row is clecoed with hinge in place.
I finished things off by riveting the two support brackets together with AN470-4-7 rivets. (rivet tails shown). I also touched up any scratches with rattle can aviation primer.
