2.2.2 Wing Leading Edge Rib

I have no specific photos to show for the installation of the left leading edge rib.  Section 2.2.4, glassing the wing, best shows where the rib goes.  The process for installing this rib is actually fairly straight forward.  With that said, the final fitting of the wing to the fuselage is going to take some rib trimming because of an early “mistake” made with the foam cores.  The instructions didn’t mention that the cores I received were pre-trimmed for the rib.  Because I didn’t realize that until after the cores were glued down, the rib is out of position by about an inch.  The factory isn’t concerned about that though!  Thank goodness!
