17-2 Steps 1,2,3,4, and 6 Cut j-channels stiffners to length, cut off splice strip from fuel tank skin, and modified two leading edge ribs on each side.
17-3 Steps 1 & 2. Started inserting the leading edge ribs into the left skin, which is in the template cradle. This step has turned out to be a royal pita. I'm having difficulties getting the ribs to fit all the way into the leading edge and align properly. I've only completed clecoing 2.5 ribs. At this rate it will take days for me to finish this step. I thought this section was going to be a piece of cake, but it turned out otherwise.
