Brief Description:  Right Wing

I had thought about not riveting the inboard three main ribs permanently until after both top and bottom skins get riveted on, the idea being better access to rivet those ribs. However, after getting the top and bottom inboard skins clecoed on, I couldn't get those three ribs in for clecoing and driilling them, due to interference from the fuel tank nutplates and the factory heads on the rivets in the rear spar reinforcements. Rather than remove a bunch of nutplates, I figure that there's a lot of folks who eventually get the bottom skin riveted on by following the plans, so I'm going to give in and do that. To that end, I removed the inboard top skin and went ahead and riveted the three inboard ribs to the right wing spars, then clecoed both top skins on. I then clecoed the bottom skins to the main spar, but had to leave them hanging due to running out of time.
