So, after making and attaching 32 gussets to 16 ribs what’s next?  More gussets!  The four root ribs require 2 custom gussets each.  Although very similar, each really is unique.  I started by cutting blank stock from angle – I don’t have to bend these.

      Here are the four pieces for the forward left and right ribs all cut, but still to be pilot drilled.  The second picture shows the 6 ribs that remain to be modified. The additional eight gussets are for four of these, two forward and two aft ribs.  The remaining two aft ribs will have the aileron bellcranks added to them.
