Primed all the parts of both flaps.

Riveted the actuator brackets onto both flap spars and inboard ribs. Started riveting the left flap together.

Detail of the little shim that I had to put behind each flap rib to get the spacing just right.

This is what the bottom of the left flap looked like when I gave up for the evening.

This is a bad picture meant to show how I cut off three of the hinge rings to allow for a two piece hinge pin istallation. I'll try to get a better picture later.
