We left the smallest rib out as the skin is bent at such a small radius it doesn’t need the rib’s support.

I epoxied strips of aluminum to the inside edge. I drilled the holes then glued and clecoed.

As Russell said or use small thin washers on the rivets

fiberglass a thin strip of aluminum along the inside edge for the rivets to grab.
