Task: Fabricated wing skin lap joint

Today I formed the lap joint on the top skins so they would lay down correctly where they join in the center of the wing. I used an idea from the forums to cut a small square out from the outter top end of the inboard top skin. This worked very well and the skin laid down nicely. I then filed the endges to form a nice angle, buffed, and primed the edge. I then clecod the top skins on the right wing in preperation for riveting.
