RV-6 Wing attach

Sunday, March 1st, 2009

Drilled rear spar attach holes on both wings.  Drilled to #30 size.   Ordered a .3125 reamer from Avery Tools for the final drilling for the 5/16 bolt.  Drilled through the pilot holes in the inboard bottom wing rib and skin into the fuselage skin.  When the wings are removed, the holes will be enlarged to #19 and platenuts installed on the wing ribs so #8 screws can attach the fuselage skin to the wing bottom skins.
