Right wing cont...

Finished drilling and fitting the leading edge ribs that go on the front side of the spar.

The angles were temporarily attached with old AN hardware and Ace hardware nuts for ease of removal. New AN nuts and bolts will be used in the final assembly.

RV-6a Wing Mounting Cont...

Mounted the right wing to the RV-6a today.

Set up the right wing spar for the RV-4 in the wing jig now that the RV-6 wing was removed.

Wing fitting on RV-6a

Finished riveting the final outside skins on the left and wings on Friday.
Saturday, I fitted the right wing to the RV-6a fuselage. It was interesting to remove the wing from the jig and insert it into the fuselage all by myself. I made some temporary fixtures that I could use to move the wing a little at a time. The rear spar attach bracket fit perfectly to the rear spar. (sigh of relief!)

The wing spars for the RV-4 and the RV-4 are in the background of the picture.
