Task: Riveted the A-408 reinforcement brackets to the A-403PP spar.

I allowed 48hrs for the primer to dry since it has been so cold here in OR this week. I started by riveting the A-408 reinforcement plates to the A-403PP spar. I also riveted the K1000-3 nutplates on to the spar.

Next I pop riveted the A-704 nose ribs to the A-409 counterbalance.

Lastly, I clecod the A-802PP leading edge skin to the nose rib/counterbalance assembly and also clecod the spar on. I need to back-rivet the stiffeners onto the aft aileron skin before proceeding any further.
