Ribs. Holy cow there are a lot of ribs!
Here are the ribs prior to unwrapping from the plastic. The first thing I did today was mark all the ribs with a marker and then remove all the little stickers with the parts numbers on them. They tend to leave a sticky adhesive behind that gums up the scotchbrite pads, so I usually remove that with some goo off. I did the same today. With this many ribs… even that took awhile.
Same ribs after all of the flanges have been straightened and deburred. I can see how this takes awhile. 5 hours later and I still have to deburr the lightening holes! As you can see, Squire is thrilled by deburring!
