Task: Riveted nutplates on T-712 spacers.

I riveted K1000-3 nutplates to 6 of the 7 T-712 tank spacers.

The inboard T-712 gets bolts from the outside so the nutplates are on the wing spar. My countersink stop was to large to countersink the outter two holes closest to the spar stiffener. Looks like I need a half-foot one!

Lastly, I got a start on the left fuel tank today. I fluted the inboard rib and clecod it onto the skin. I don't want to cleco all the ribs in place yet as I won't have enough clecos to trial fit the skins next week.
