Task: Finished riveting ribs to the rear spars

After 3 weeks of waiting for a longeron yoke to arrive, it finally showed up today!

I was able to squeeze the rivets on the bottom half of the ribs to the rear spars. It took no time to set about 40 rivets on both wings.

Next task is to level the jig. I fabricated a bracket to hold the inboard flange of the rear spar and clamped them in place. I need to get a 4x4 for the center support and then we can get the wings leveled out.
