Short Description:  Wing Conduit and Wing Skin Dimpling

Well, I have some good news and some bad.

Good news: Routed the conduit through the wing using the holes previously drilled in the ribs. That was a pain, especially by the wing root where the ribs were so close together. Easy, but I need to show some progress while contemplating my latest screwup.

Bad news: Drilled, debured and dimpled the uipper-outboard wing panel, only to discover that I dimpled in the wrong direction! Ugh!! At first I ordered a replacement panel from Van's, but after thinking about it I determined that I can steal the panel from the opposite wing (not done yet). This panel can then replace the one I stole. Now I must determine if match drilling into the ribs and spar will screw anything up, but I don't have much choice. Actually, I could drill the replacement panel to size and hope that it matches the spar/rib holes. I hope that all makes sense!

Will get started on that project tonight.
