I assembled the left and right outboard wing leading edge sections in the cradles, clecoed the ribs in place, cut the stiffener to length and match drilled it to the wing skins. I also match drilled holes in the inboard flange tab of the ribs to match the skins.
I used my micrometer to scribe a line 5/16" (0.3125") from the edge of the stiffener to aid in alignment in the wing. The scribe line does not cut into the aluminum, only the plastic protective sheet.
Here's my onsite inspector, Woodie, doing inspection and quality control.
I also cut the slot for the stall warning vane. The dremel cutoff wheel worked well.
