4.2 hrs, 124 rivets.
Rivet the right wing skeleton together.
Started by riveting the 3 inboard tank attach nutplates to the main spar. Those are some of the toughest rivets to set up to this point. They rank right up there with topside leading edge rivets.

Then riveted the 14 inboard ribs to the spar.

Clecoed the rear spar on, and the outboard main rib. Then riveted all the ribs to the rear spar. All except the center hole on the inboard rib, since it gets done in assembly with another part.
