Section: 17
Hours: 6

I smoothed the nose flanges, fluted the flanges and final drilled and dimpled the holes. in the outboard wing leading edge ribs. Fluting these large ribs is like squeezing toothpaste in the toothpaste tube. I had more problems with these than any of the ribs in the empennage, but they all sit flat, the flanges are 90 degrees to the table and the holes all line up in a straight line.

I also trimmed 4 of the ribs to fit where the spar caps are wider at the inboard section of the wing (per dimensions given in the instructions).

I cut trim tabs off of the access door frame and finished the edges of the landing light mounting brackets.
