Brief Description:  Leading Edge - Landing Light 4 Rib Platenuts

Next step is to put platenuts on the ribs. I glued the template to carboard and used it to locate the holes for the platenutes. Then I used my standard platenut technique to fasten them. My steps are:
1) drill center hole full size to match the bolt.
2) clecoe one side of the platenut and drill the rivet hole. Then the other side.
3) rivet

I used the oops rivets so the heads are really small and don't need much of a countersink to be flush.

And the ribs get the LARGE platenuts, not the small ones. This was not easy to determine from the plan.
