1.5 hrs, 8 rivets
Riveted the left wing middle flap attach bracket to the rib.
Clamped and drilled the middle 925B and C parts. Of course first had to machine countersink the first hole on the 925C.
Deburr middle 925 parts and cleco back on.
Fit bottom skins to wing. Those wings look very cool with both skins on, even when there are clecoes involved.

Match drilled all three 925C brackets for holes in skin.

Removed the bottom skins and deburred them. Put them back in storage.
Disassemble the 925B and C parts one last time. Deburr the newly drilled holes.
I was going to countersink, but there's no real hurry. It was dark, and I started getting concious of the noise I was making. It's a school night for the neighbor kids.

Finally getting some riveting help lined up.
