Assembled the inboard and outboard rod end ribs. Clecoed the ribs and doubles together. Match drilled the #40 holes and final drilled the 1/4″ hole. Countersunk the #40 holes on the outboard doublers.
Clecoed the ribs to the flap hinges and final drilled all the #30 holes.
Modified all the main ribs by removing the top forward tab from each with the Dremel and a cutoff wheel. Finished with a bit of sanding to remove the burrs.
Assembled the flap substructures.
Trimmed the inboard and outboard trailing edges to final size with the bandsaw and finished on the scotch brite wheel.
Clecoed the flaps together.
Match drilled the two top holes in each of the nose ribs. I also final drilled all of the holes in the trailing edges.
Assembled the hardware in the hinge to hold everything in alignment and match drilled the four holes in the trailing edge of the hinge.
Next I need to machine countersink the holes in the trailing edge wedge and the holes I just drilled in the hinges. Then dimple and prime everything.
