Bent trailing edge

Today I swung by Home Depot and picked up a 2×8 to build a bending brake.  

 
Here I’m bending the trailing edge on the right skin. The left skin didn’t require as much force but it took basically my whole weight pressing down on it. 

 
Here are both skins bent and clecoed to the skeleton. I also drilled all the holes to final size in prep for disassembly. 

All in all I put in a good 2 hours tonight.
