Completing Wing and Landing Light

I’m going to start today by removing the plastic covering along the rivet line of the leading edge skin using my soldering iron. Next I opened up the wing to work on the mount for the landing light and trimmed the protective coating around the opening so that I will be able to install the lense hardware. I removed the two outboard tip ribs and then using my forming dies I reversed the outboard stiffening flange on one of the ribs. Next I marked drilled and installed the nut plates. Finally, I reinstalled the ribs.
