One for the road

Since I am not going to be able to work on the airplane for the next couple of nights (going to Portland for training) I thought I would do a quick update of tonight's work.  Mariah came home from her trip to Salem and was able to help me put the last 6 rivets into the leading edge on the right wing.  It was a hard spot to reach with the bucking bar since we had to reach into the the lightening holes about arm pit deep and hold a bucking bar blind.  We managed to do it and I was able to get the fuel tank installed and the top skins cleco'd onto the ribs.  Only one picture for tonight.
Right wing with leading edge complete and top skins cleco'd on.
