Brief Description: Right Wing Bottom Inboard Skin - Done
Today I finished riveting the right bottom inboard wing skin. Karen helped by moving clecos and inserting rivets for me. She also did QC by noticing a few rivets that were standing proud. I drilled out and replaced three.
I also attempted to start on the right outboard bottom skin. After clecoing it at the rib intersections along the front spar, I couldn't get the holes to line up at the rear spar. Clecoing at the rib intersections at the rear spar had the same effect at the front spar. Clecoing down one rib got rid of some of the offset but not enough. The gap between the bottom outboard skin and the leading edge seems to be more or less constant, so I don't think the wing is twisted. Just in case, I removed the wing from the rotisserie and put it back in the cradle in case that was inducing some twist. That made no difference. I've called Hal Lyons, a local RV-7 builder/flyer to come over tomorrow and see what he thinks.

Inboard skin riveting complete. I HOPE Karen is just teasing with the hammer...
