More Wingtip Work
More wingtip work today. I got the left wingtip drilled to the fuselage, then I removed the tips and drilled some aluminum reinforcement strips to the top half of the tips. The plans say that the reinforcement strips are optional if you're using nutplates and screws, but people have reported sagging if you don't reinforce...ergo...I'm putting strips on the top. I don't see a need to put them on the bottom.
I also epoxied..then riveted the rip into place.
I also enlarged, deburred and dimpled all of the screw holes in the wing skins. I started to edge-roll all of the skins but my edge roll tool won't fit (the ribs interfere).
