Drilling & Counter sinking

Today I drilled all the remaining #40 holes on the spars. Next I focused on the left spar and kind of skipped around a bit. As I didn’t want to keep adjusting the microstop, I countersunk all the nut plate holes. I had to do a search on VAF that as part of the instructions were confusing. Basically there are 7 holes on each side of the spar that need to be countersunk, but wasnt quite clear. Well this was getting quite boring so I riveted the nut plates on after every so many counter sinks. After riveting all the nut plates on the left spar I called it a night. Tomorrow I anticipate finishing the right spar as well as all the countersinking on both spars.
