Operation "Free the Cleco's" ( Left Leading Edge final assembly)
Bekah and I spent a few hours saturday morning trying to liberate clecos so that I had enough to work through both tanks. I figure the left leading edge was a good place to get some from. I won't do the right leading edge for a while since I think I have enough clecos now to work through the tanks.
I also took the time to drop a few rivets into the countersunk spar flange under the tank. These single rivet holes at the end of the ribs don't get used to hold the skin on so I was able to close them up now with a rivet.
