Final riveting the lt. lower wing skin. After clecoeing the skin I started riveting the center first, and then worked upper and lower ribs evenly. Once 1 bay was complete I removed the clecoes as required, and pealed the skin out as to slide my arm inside with a bucking bar. This is easier accomplished with two people. Using Dan's method I worked my way outboard starting with the center of each bay (rib) and then working up and down the rib evenly. The toughest were the aft spar three or four bays from outboard. I may try a different approach on the right wing, and follow the Van's plans more closely. I'll let you know.
