I finished up the bulk of the prep on the left wing and set up the wing stand for the right wing. Getting the ribs ready for priming is quite a chore... I hope to get the right wing to match the left tomorrow.
Back on the bench I final drilled the wing getting ready to rivet. I need a larger step drill to cut holes for the conduit that will feed to the wingtip and finalize the pitot and AOA lines.
