Brief Description:  Bolt ribs, roll servo, and fab right rear spar

Fun stuff at first. I bolted the wing ribs to the right spar and torqued them. I also removed one of the aileron actuator brackets and replaced it with the one for the TruTrak roll servo, plus the rear (upper) bracket which required that I remove the bolt and the washer and then retorque the bolts. I went ahead and added the servo and torqued the bolts but did not safety them. All torqued bolts except the three on the servo were painted with torque seal. Yes, I put it over the threads over the nuts. Those are permanent bolts; if they have to be removed, they will be replaced (though if lacquer galled threads, then I think there is something wrong with the hardware).

Then I turned to the rear spar. The aileron hinge brackets had been fabricated with the left wing, so I skipped over to the rear spar doublers. They were drilled to the rear spar and I marked the middle one for the pushrod opening. Then I clecoed the rest of the spar, including the fork and its doubler, to the ribs. Tomorrow will be match-drilling, creating that pushrod opening, and finishing up the rear spar.
