5.5 hrs, 18 rivets
Setup wing on stand and check for twist.
Cleco leading edge to spar.

Using the squeezer, set the forward main rib/spar rivets that are hidden by the tank skin.
At this point, need the girl to show up to rivet the leading edge to the spar. So while I was waiting, started edge deburring on flap attach brackets.
Then remembered that I needed to deburr both right top wing skins. So got that done.
Then filed leading edge overlap on wing skins. Dimpling can be done while waiting for riveting help.
At that point on the right wing where I need help to make progress.
