Starting to look like a Flap!

Match drilling the trailing edge.

Match drilling the Left Flap nose ribs.

Clecoing the Flap trailing edge extrusion to the lower flap skin.

I don't know what  the weather outside is doing, and I don't care!

Flap hinges and ribs get fitted.

Flap skeleton all clecoed up!

Here the end rib is clecoed in and a flange adjusted to match the leading edge skin angle.

Riveting the flap hinges together.  My arm is tired!

Started on flaps.

Prime time!  Hope everyone had a great Independence Day!

It is very important to buff the radiuses of any nose ribs.
Failure to do so will lead to a crease in the leading edge.

Started working on the flaps.  Here I cleco hinge parts together for match drilling.
Preparing to match drill a flap nose rib to a doubler.
