Short Description:  Full Size Ribs and Nose Ribs-ish

This has been a few days combined. Lately it's been around 105-115F out each day, so I'll work for a few minutes here or there on things. I had a bit of a hump with the nose ribs. Seems my formblock for the nose was distorted and I didn't catch it before I traced out and rough cut a lot of the pieces. I think they might still work fine, but I decided to set them aside for a bit and work on something different. I decided to tackle the two full size ribs required, so I cut them out (after ordering $400 in aluminum). I rough cut them out, then drilled the jig holes on them both. Then I marked and drilled the pilot holes for the lightening holes. One router with a circle template, three bits, and half a can of WD40 later, I had the lightening holes cut out and the rib ready for final trimming and flanging.
