Left Wing in Stand

We got the left wing into the stand and it is looking good. I can't say that the riveting went perfect, but we got the job done and it does look good. There were two rivets that had to be drilled out for various reasons, but we recovered from our errors and the wing is solid.

Looking down the top of the spar, it is exciting to see the structure together with no Clecos.. check out all them beautiful rivets. !

Also, very excited to get the wing in the stand permanently and take this gratuitous shot that is on all the other builder sites.. Looking through the lightening holes..

I haven't secured the rear spar yet, but initial checks with the plumb bob show this wing to have zero twist. As the skins go on, we will make sure to keep it that way.
