Obviously you need to pay attention and NOT do the ribs for the wing walk, but can I dimple the others at the same time?...
Yes there is a specific instruction in the plans where it says to dimple the top flange. Here it is: Page 14-02 step 7, parag 3: Dimple the top flanges of the wing ribs EXCEPT do not dimple the rib flanges that lie under the W-1 027 A and W-1027B Wing Walk Doublers.

Now, I think that this instruction is misplaced and should've been inserted in page 12-03, step 3. This deserves to be reported to Van's for future plan revisions. It would make all of us avoid sleepless nights.

Please note, I have the advantage of having other guys who went through those discrepancies before me thus avoiding me making mistakes but I hate the idea of being victorious because of someone else mishaps. I hope one day I'll be as helpful to you guys as your are to me.
