Brief Description:  Trailing Edge - Main Wings

Installed the trailing edge on both wings. First the trailing edge was taped in place and measured for trimming, the edge is made of two pieces of metal joined in the middle of a rib web. This joint can be seen in picture two. After the pieces fit properly they were drilled and countersunk to accept rivets. All holes were deburred then the edge was sanded where it will be glued to each rib. Finally adhesive was smeared all over the ribs, the trailing edge was then installed and rivetted in place.

Also while the adhesive was out I installed the wing tip braces. These consisted of two metal tubes rivetted and glued to the spar and last rib. This can be seen in picture 3.
