Cussin' time!!

The instructions say to "Rivet the FL-906B Plate to the inboard FL-905 Rib", then "install the platenut". What the instructions should have said was "Rivet one side of the platenut to the aft end of the FL-905 Rib. Then rivet the FL-906B Plate to the inboard FL-905 Rib, then rivet the other end of the platenut through the countersunk hole in the FL-906B Plate." The original instructions aren't wrong, just practically impossible to do a good job of installing the platenut. UPDATE: 12/29/2007 Check out how I did the right flap at this point.
