Reassembly of wing skeleton

Kerin was nice enough to help me rivet the main ribs on to the spars today. I drove and she bucked. We only had a handful that we had to do over. Here's the right spar with main ribs back in place. :-)

...and the same goes for the left spar.

At the end of the evening, I clecoed on the leading edge to the left spar. I'm thinking it'll be easier to rivet the ribs to the spar in this orientation rather than when it's on the wing stand. I also wanted to rivet on this leading edge before attaching the rear spar.

There is one rib near the center of the leading edge that's really hard to get to. I'm not sure how I'm gonna get clecos in there much less buck the rivets.
