Clecoed the hinge bracket assemblies to the flap spars

Both spars are identical, the only difference being one is marked "R" for right and "L" for left. Also it is difficult to see which way is up. So I put the left flap together first according to the "left flap" shown on the drawing. Then I put the right flap together as a mirror image of the left one (opposite that is). You'll notice that I still have the 1/4" bolts with the washers between the bottom holes of the hinge brackets. These bolts keep the holes aligned where the flaps will attach to the wing, while I'm final drilling all of the 1/8" inch holes in the bracket assemblies.
