Task: Riveted ribs to spars and assembled rightleading edge

Went to Aircraft Home Depot this morning to get 1.5"x1.5"x1/8" angle aluminum for the outer wing support. The 1" angle didn't allow the spar to sit far enough away where the outer skin overlaps the edge (for the wingtip fairing). After getting those drilled, I hung the wings on the jig.

Received the ST4130-035x1/2 aileron pushrod yesterday in the mail. It had been on backorder when we picked up the wing kit. I cut them to the prescribed length and drilled for the F3414M rod ends.

Primed the inside of the W-818 pushrods.

Both wings hung on the jig with the leading edges in place!
