Riveted the inboard rib parts

The instructions say to "Rivet the FL-906B Plate to the inboard FL-905 Rib; install the platenut; and rivet the Rib to the FL-903 Spar". I don't agree with this. If you put the FL-906B reinforcement plate on first, the short rivet at the end of the plate that holds the platenut in place is almost impossible to squeeze without stove-piping(bending over) the rivet. So I put in the aft-most rivet to secure the platenut first.
