Time:
3.0
Task: Assembled flaps. Riveted the FL-706A/B mounting plates into place and riveted the FL-705 ribs to the back of the FL-702 bottom skin.

I started by riveting the FL-706B mounting plate to the FL-704 spar. I then riveted the K1000-4 nutplate on.




I then riveted FL-706A onto the FL-703 spar.





Next I riveted the aft hole in the FL-705 ribs to the FL-702 bottom skin.




The right flap being clecod together.




Repeated the riveting on the right flap.





Left flap clecod together. Ready for riveting. The procedure is to make a jig to hold the flap in place vertically and rivet with the spar removed. I still need to make the jig.




Right flap clecod together, ready for riveting.
