Chapter 8: Can I take off the front spar caps to final-sized drill the doubler?
Chapter 8, page 4, step 4 says "Step 4: Except for those indicated in Figure 1, final-drill #30 the 1/8 [3.2 mm] holes common to the HS-00902-1 Front Spar and the HS-00907-1 Front Spar Doubler."
It does not mention the HS-00913 spar caps, which may still be clecoed on from Step 2 when the spar cap holes were already match-drilled to the spar. I'm inclined to remove the spar caps for this final-sized drilling to minimize the chance of accidentally making some of the holes oblong. Anyone see a problem with that?
