Task: Final drilled right tank, countersunk baffling, and drilled inner right leading edge rib.

Final drilled the T-702 tank baffle to the T-704 ribs.

I then countersunk the T-701 skin along the baffle rivet holes.

Next I moved on to the inner rib of the leading edge. I put it in place, clamped it, and match drilled the rear holes through the main spar. I put clecos to hold the base in position and then clamped the W-423 joint plate in position and drilled.

The W-423 aligned and drilled to the rib.
