I got the plywood strips ready today and glued down all these ribs and strips with the stapler. I also glued the plywood gussets onto frame #10. I saw a builder recommend on the Sequoia site to heat the staples with a soldering iron before trying to remove them to make them come out easier. Since I couldn't pull them out with the nylon cord on the delicate ribs, I tried this out and it worked rather well. No hand pain this time, although I touched the surfaces of plywood strips a couple times. Oh well.
