I've spent some time over the last few days to finish up the mounting of the wingtip. After I got the reinforcement strips glued on I drilled the holes out. Then I used the nutplates to mark the rivet holes and drilled those out. The next step was to rivet the nutplates to the wingtip. Then I drilled out the wing to accept the #6 screws and then dimpled the holes for flush mount. The last step was to mount the wingtip. Next step is to install the Nav lights and strobes in each wingtip and then to cut and fit the plexiglass cover for them.
