Brief Description: Prime LE Skins;Rivet L Flap Hinge Subassemblies
22-6: Step 6: Noticed I had not primed the inside of the LE skins of L and R Flaps. On read-ahead I noted comment to bend trailing edge of LE skins so they lay flat against the top and bottom skins. Experimented lightly with bending the edges over with large jaw vice grips but was not happy with progress and overall edge. Decided to use the edge roller in between the dimpled holes which, with a light setting locked in to the roller, worked quite well and should provide a firm closed overlap. I may do this on the TE of the top and bottom skins so I don't need to have so many clamps holding the TE tight while the Proseal cures. 22-7: Step 1 - 6: Completed L-Flap hinge subassembly riveting per the plans. I used AN470AD-4-4.5 vs the 4-4s as the length was better and produced better shop heads. Used NAS1097 3-4 rivets to secure MK 1000-428 Nutplate due to the thinness of FL1006 doubler.
Edge rolled between dimples
Double flush rivets worked well with hand squeezer
Secured center hinge in vice and bucked AN470AD4-10 rivets.
