Brief Description:  Flaps - Drill bottom skin to rib aft hole

Then you are suppose to make these little shims for the aft end of the ribs that go in between the rib tab and skin. The skin is folder into a spar. But, thanks to brother Ed pointing out that the skin is not snug against the ribs, I first match drilled the hole thru skin into the rib to hold it snug. Otherwise I would end up with bad positioning of the rear rivet that goes through the folded spar and into the aft tab of the rib.
