Joint plate platenuts

This picture is actually from late on Saturday night. Jason and Rob helped me install the top main skins on the right wing.

The next day, I decided to install the nutplates on the joint plates. I cut a screw really short so I could use it to hold a nutplate in place while I riveted.

Here's one of the nutplates being held in place in preparation for riveting.

All the nutplates are installed on the left wing joint plate. :-) Actually they're installed on the right wing joint plate, too...I just didn't get a picture of that.

Lastly, I installed the tiedown brackets on the left and right wings.
