Brian & Brandi's Van's RV10 Build

Leading edge lights

by Brian Thursday, December 09, 2010

Both left and right leading edges have been assembled but not yet attached to the main wing spar. We are waiting to attach until after we put in the Duckworks HID light kit. We're waiting on the mail to arrive with the documents that were missing from the light kit and as soon as it gets here Brandi is project leader for lights because shes bright so she'll get along well. In the meantime, it was handy to stack the leading edges under the main wing spars on our wing stand.

Leading Edge helper

Section 17 is the outboard leading edge of the wing. My little sister, Hannah, was visiting and like any good big brother would do I put her right to work! She was very helpful and worked the clecos like a pro. The ribs were all put in, match drilled, deburred, etc. The ribs were kind of a tight fit in some spots to get them to line up perfectly. Had to break out the rubber mallot a few times.
