I accidently erased pictures, so this is a compilation of all the work done on 1/19, 1/23, 1/24, 1/28, 1/29, 1/30, 1/31, 2/1, 2/2, 2/5 and 2/6. I started by cleaning and scotchbrighting the fittings, and skin. Next was riveting on the stiffeners to the skin. Then more skin cleaning. Primed the z-brackets and T-905. Taped the skin for sealing the ribs. Then I started teh rib installation. I also between rib install, riveted the nutplates onto the T-912 brackets. When installing the outer rib, i also put on the tooling hole cover, and the BNC fitting and vent fitting on rib 1. Finally i riveted rib 1 into place with T-905R on the outside and T-410 on the inside.
