Task: Deburred, fluted, and assembled ribs to spar

Deburred the lightening holes, edges, and started fluting the main wing ribs today. I was able to finish all of the right wing ribs and get a start on the left wing ribs. I was going to drill the electrical conduit holes first but decided to cleco the ribs in place first to make sure I had the orientation correct. I'll drill the holes after I've removed the ribs for priming.

The right wing ribs clecod to the main and rear spars. Starting to look like a wing!

Started fluting the left wing ribs and clecoing to the main spar.
