More Flap Drilling
A little bit more flap drilling tonight. I started by fabricating some shims, using them between the rear spar and ribs, then I started the assembly of the left flap.
After inserting the appropriate thickness shim between the rib and spar, I clamped it together, and drilled using my 6" #30 bit. When this was complete, I match drilled the bottom skin to the ribs and spar.
I started the left flap by clecoing the ribs to the spar. I didn't cleco on the bottom skin this time.
Clamp and drill, clamp and drill.
And again, the ribs don't touch the rear spar. I have more shims to make tomorrow.
