3.5 hrs, 168 rivets
Started by dimpling the left leading edge skin. Just as this was finishing up, Jim and Brenda Robillard arrived. Jim asked if he could help when we were at their house before Christmas, so I invited him over to do some riveting.

We got to work on the leading edge skin and spars. There were a few tricky spots, but we worked through them, and viola, one each leading edge ready to install on the spar. Now Jim is trained in the craft of riveting.

Thanks Jim!
