Question on Page 16-04
Step 6, on page 16-04, has you rivet the Outboard Aileron Hinge Bracket Assembly after the top outboard skin is riveted in place:
"Step 6: Cleco the W-1014-L Outboard Aileron Hinge Bracket Assembly to the wing assembly per Step 1.Rivet the outboard hinge bracket assembly to the W-1012-R TRIMMED Outboard Wing Rib then to the W-00007A-LRear Spar Web and W-1007E-L Rear Spar Doubler Plate as shown in Figure 1"
Is there any reason that I can not rivet the bracket in place before I rivet the top skin in place? The Inboard Hinge Bracket is already in place, so that one caused no issue. With the Outboard Bracket clecoed on place I can see a reason not to rivet the bracket prior to the skin.
I really hesitate to not follow the plans to the letter. I find that they are always correct. I just can't see a reason not to rivet the bracket, while I still have access to both sides of the rear spar.
Thanks all and Merry Christmas!
