Flaps done!

1.7 hrs, 134 rivets
Riveted the flap trailing edges. They look pretty good. Again used. -3.5 rivets instead of the -3's called for in the drawings.
Bolted one of the flaps to the wing. But there's nothing to hold it in place so it's just hanging there. Definitely not right.
I haven't finished the aileron stops yet, they are being held by one cleco. But that cleco interferes with the flaps, so getting that cleco out of the way is the next task.
After that, prime, paint, and assemble the 917 aileron pushrods.
