Finished dimpling and countersinking the left flap parts

You'll notice here that I countersinked one flange of the flap spar and dimpled the other. As I mentioned in a previous log item, one side of this spar has a perfect 90 degree flange, which I dimpled. The other flange has more of an angle bend which prevented my from dimpling it without distorting the spar. The instructions say to countersink both sides, but I opted to do what I did. I'm not suggesting that anyone else do this. This is my experiment.
