Short Description:  Fitting Main Skins and Fitting Leading Edge

I continued fitting the main skins today. I cleaned up the skin edges and got the top and bottom skins fitted to both wings. Then I ran out of clecos! I ordered more so that I can fit up all the skins at once. Until I get those I moved on to fitting the leading edge.

I cleaned up the edges of both leading edge skins and pulled the vinyl off the insides. I then placed both skins in my cradle in sequence and clecoed the ribs in to them. I had to do some surgery on one end of my cradle due to the plywood cracking in the middle. I should have used thicker plywood instead of what was called for in the plans. It works but could be stronger.
