Brief Description:  Drill & cleco wing 1/8", tack rivet rear top skin

1. Tack rivet 60-mm outboard of ribs 2, 4, & 6 per PAM instructions. The tack rivets are not flush with the surface. They stick up ~1/32" or so. I talked to Roger, ZAC, and he said that would not be a problem. See Fig. 1.

2. Drill top rear skin 1/8" & cleco. I did not have enough zinc clecos to leave the 3/32" clecoes in the top and to drill 3/32" and cleco the bottom rear skin. The top skin looked to be a perfect fit. See Fig. 2.

3. After talking with Roger, I have decided on the following wing build sequence from here on out:

- Turn wing over
- Drill 3/32" and cleco the bottom rear skin
- Rivet on the nose ribs
- Install the boost fuel pump and the gascolator
- Drill 3/32" and cleco the nose skin to the main spar and nose ribs
- Turn the wing over, drill 3/32" and cleco the nose skin to the top of the nose ribs and main spar
- Double check for alignment, twist, etc.
- Drill nose ribs out for A4's and top rear skin for A5's
- Install aileron control horn and access cover
- Rivet top rear skin
- Install fuel tank and fuel lines
- Rivet top nose skin
- Install wing locker
- Install landing/taxi light
