Short Description:  Assembled trim tab. Assembled rear spar to ribs

I used Proseal for the first time today to put the trim tab ribs in place. I had the 6 ounce tubes and ended up wasting most of it as the 3 ribs didn't take much. It wasn't as messy as some others have mentioned but maybe I was prepared for it since that's what a lot of people have talked about in other forums. It went real smooth except that I forgot to remove the clecoes from the trailing edge and apply the double sided tape before I put the foam ribs in place with the proseal on them. I quickly removed them, put the tape on. Once this is done you can put on the top skin, rivet the leading edge (with the aft hinge attached) and cleco the trailing edge. The TE will get riveted later. I set it aside with weights on it to help the ribs cure to the skins. Then I attached the ribs to the rear spar. Pretty straight forward.
