Final top skin riveting, pt II

Not a lot to report tonight, Josie was able to help me move the left wing to the bench so I could squeeze the top skin-rear spar rivets. That concludes riveting on the top skins, with the exception of a few rivets on the right spar reinforcement that I have to replace.

With that done, I decided to cleco the left aileron gap fairing into place, mainly just to see it there. I’m going to wait before I match drill this, maybe tomorrow night; then I can do both flap braces at the same time. Those have to have a bit of trimming done before they can be clecoed and match drilled, though. More on that tomorrow (or whenever I do it)
