Installation of wing gap pipe & wing bow  (Right Wing)
Installation of wing ribs (Left Wing)
Installation of rib support channels (Left Wing)

Installation of elevator tail plate anchor nuts (1 of 2)
Installation of elevator tail plate anchor nuts (2 of 2)
 
A few more holes drilled to install the wing gap pipe and wing bow, and our right wing is finished...
  The work on the left wing was much faster, we're not "first time builders" anymore!

 
Get the big picture! Click on this image! This step was a little scary since we had to drill directly into the main tube.  It took us 30 minutes to adjust the rivets flush with the outside of the tube and install the first anchor nut.  Then another 15 minutes for the second nut, and finally, 15 minutes for the last two anchor nuts!
  We learned very quickly how to do this!
